Skyline in the making

P1120632The skyline from the Tiergarten S-bahn station. Only a couple of years ago the skyline would have looked differently. Now the Waldorf Astoria is the new beacon of City West. Until the next skyscraper…Upper West is in the making.

Tiergarten magic

P1020641

A long stroll from Volkspark to Tiergarten to catch as much snow as possible before the inevitable Tauwetter (snow-melting weather). The pumpkin and ginger soup next to the logfire by the lake was our target!  Wood fire, a perfume of my childhood…

Mumble mumble…something tells us that we’ll keep on seeing each other for ice-creams even after their move to another bike-friendly city 🙂

The Beauty and the Beast

U-bahn and S-bahn: the Beauty and the Beast! Until June 2009 everything went on just fine…and then the S-bahn nightmare began!

In the meantime, U-bahn keeps on going like a Swiss train, there were some glitches on December 30th due to the sudden drop in temperatures to -18°C and the deep frost, but that was the exception confirming the rule.
