The hare and I






I'm spending my days with a craftsman (3rd picture...?) who speaks such heavy Berlinerisch that he has to repeat almost everything he says before I understand him. He's been changing toilet, sinks and we got a new gas stove, yay! Looking forward to cook at home again. Our apartment is rented and the landlord has given us some new stuff + we get some free rent because the place is the shabbiest. We're lucky because we both like to fix up apartments and we're able to do whatever we want as long as we leave the place painted in "neutral" colours.

It's raining and the girl at the café I was at drew an umbrella and rubber boots on my coffee. Sweet. There's something special about the milk here that makes coffee taste even better - don't know what it is - maybe it's a bit more fat + a little sweeter than in Sweden, it gives the coffee a much more rich and full taste.

  1. maybe you'll like coffee in taiwan even better, because they add stuffs in the milk, so the milk taste much more thicker and very rich and more sweet than in europe or even japan

  2. oly > would be nice to try it! i'm not sure i would want it sweeter than this though, at first i thought it was too sweet but now it's perfect :) i wonder how coffee will taste in sweden once i've got used to it here. hugs to you!

  3. so good to read about your berlin adventures, i'm hooked!

    p.s.:super good to see you're taking beautiful images despite the grey and rainy weather - i'm so struggling with being totally uninspired photo-wise at the moment and hope there's a way to get my mojo back.

  4. before i tried the swedish milk i was hearing everybody complaining about it. how it makes people's bellies swollen. i was then explained that it was because it is fully pasteurized. then i tried it and i understood what they were talking about.
    anyway, milk is not the same everywhere but your photos are always and everywhere so inspiring.

  12. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your apartment, and am happy you get so much good stuff from your landlord. And how cute are that umbrella and boots!

  13. ah Sandra! how great are home renovations!! Hope they go fast!

    My take on Swedish food (dairy, bread and general food) – I remember it tasted sort of sour, not very salty, not very sweet. A very subtle feeling but immediately recognisable once you come back to your native food.

  14. I love the umbrella and rubber boots! First I thought the boots were hearts but this is better. So cute! I am loving reading and seeing all about your new home.

  18. I know what you mean about milk. I can never add skimmed milk to my coffee. The thicker and richer the better.
