We've had this post lying around the drafts section for some time now. Partly because we miss Berlin so much it makes us sad to see the photos, but mostly because these photos were taken on three different outlets and were a bugger to resize. It still doesn't look too coherent but enjoy the juicy fruits of my labour!
P.s. If you've been wondering where Lady Harriett is, she's currently finishing some writing deadlines so wish her luck yeah?
This is the last post of our month long stay in Berlin, this is the week that Erika came to stay. FUCK YEAH. This must have been the day after the Holstinater arrived so we took her around the area and brought her shopping.
Erika likes books.
Harriett likes filth.
Harriett bought her filth and a 60s mini skirt from this crazy shop super close to Mauerpark but we can't remember the name.
We then took Erika to Bonanza Coffee which is the best coffee I've ever had.
In the evening we took Erika to the best sushi place ever.
In the evenings we mainly partied at 8mm into the early hours. These photos mark a particularly late one when we stayed out until 10 am. Oh the Berlin way.
Two gins for the girls and a whiskey for me please Sir.
Harriett found this awesome 60s shirt at a flea market for like €1.
I'm wearing a 30s frilly chiffon top and black palazzos.
Three drinks later (drink in Berlin is literally half spirit) 'I loooove you baby, you are FLAWLESS'.
We got a bit dizzy.
But then Magnus and Emil came so we pulled ourselves back together for all of ten minutes.
We then went back to Emil and Magnus' apartment. We were informed that it was 'Bohemian' we all know that this means that there is a cupboard of dirty dishes and a conspicuous shower in the kitchen.
Me and Emil in a haze of moody black clothes at approximately 7 am.
Emil calls this cat 'Columbus' as its not actually their cat, it just likes adventures and discovery.
He hit the hay early, pussy.
We then retreated home to get our sorry arses into bed. But before we hit the hay, Harriett bet me she could get into my suitcase.
She was right.
On another day, I took Erika on a trip round central Berlin to do the touristy kind of stuff.
This meant a return to the fabulous film museum which is one of my all time favourite museums. All you geeks may know a lot about silents in Berlin and we got to see original cameras and set designs. Theres also a permanent exhibition of Marlene Dietrich's clothes which is always lick-the-glass and cry worthy.
We saw this ad everywhere.
Da Capo vinyl
Me and Erika walked from Central Berlin back to Prenzlauger Berg. We walked past a garden with this huge elephant made out of bin bags.
It also had a little ticket booth. Weird.
This photo is taken in Mitte which is a beautiful part of town that I'd like to spend more time in.
Me and Erika went to the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm where Brecht put on a lot of his work.
We made out with Brecht....
Thank you for helping me bullshit my way through my playwriting class!
To mark the end of our holiday we went for sushi again.
We then swanned off to a wine bar decked out in late 50s 'atomic' design.
The wine bar is a €2 service charge and then €2 for every glass.
Cheers to that!
Does anyone know this place? We don't know the name. We call it the €2 wine bar.
This is a little game we like to call 'doing a Dickens'. Pull strange face and raise candles.
'You're just an undigested piece of beef!'
'There's more of gravy than of grave about you,'
These most excellent drunk photos marks the rest of our holiday snaps. After the place closed we went to a play park played on the swings and went to NEU! bar.
I'm so glad that Erika joined us, especially since she's now going to live back in Sweden *CRIES*! I hope you guys enjoyed this post as it took me FOREVER! In a few days a guest post of mine will be featured on Andi's blog. YAY!
Lots of Love,
Aimee (and Harriett and Erika)
