Ich bin ein Berliner!

I'd like to say that we haven't posted in a while due to the fact that we've been having wild adventures in Berlin, but that wouldn't be true. Instead, we've mostly been trying to avoid the oppressive heat while also trying to find a place to live for a while.

Most of the time in these parts the temperature never exceeds 30°C (86°F) and so the city is ill equipped for the temperatures (no A/C in most places). We've had to be creative with moist towels and cold beer.

The good news is that we will have plenty of time to explore Berlin as month-long residents of the city. I've landed a computer programming gig from a former employer back in the US and I need to hunker down and get to work!  As for the blog, we'll still be sharing our thoughts about living in Germany and we'll also be taking side trips to explore the surrounding country. And, yes, we'll eventually get caught up with old posts and tell you all about DC, Maryland, New York and the wedding in Holland.

Until then, here are a few pictures (and a road video) from Berlin.

Trying To Stay Cool

  1. Good to hear from you! Sorry you have to suffer through the heatwave while sightseeing and apt. hunting. Our weatherman reported that it was 114 degrees yesterday in Phoenix. We will be in the high 90's all week with high humidity thrown in for good measure. The park looks serene and cool. Just don't tell me if that's where you are "camping out" these days! :)
    Take care!
    Love, Mom

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
