An afternoon at Grandma's II

After the summer version now the winter version of an afternoon at my grandma's place. I really love that garden, no matter the season. It is also always nice to feel home..

Treptower Park

So today, because of the blue sky and the sun shinning i just could not stay indoor, my whole body and soul demanded to GO OUT. Also this whole week i have been very lazy, always staying home, hibernating in a way, it would only snow, so i'd rather stay home under my warm blanket. So today, when i went out, the snow had stopped, J. and I headed up to the Treptower Park. Pure beauty, the snow was still white (not turned into some disgusting mud)and in some parts no one had walked on it yet. Then we went to the Soviet War Memorial, which is just .. Massive ! i mean the soviets they did think BIG ! the statue is actually 12-m tall and it represents a Soviet soldier with a sword holding a German child, standing over a broken swastika. Not less. Later on we found ourselves into some seagull action, fighting for food. Well and after that long walk out in the cold we went have a fantastic hot chocolate at Les Enfants Gatés in Kreuzberg.

My Deers !

I am rather lazy now to write the whole story myself, so i just 'stole' some lines from the internet, which describe pretty well the whole Soma Exhibition Concept. "the whole exhibition is about this mythical elixir called soma. It’s a drink that sends you to nirvana. A kind of good for you mushroom based hallucinogen. The artist’s idea is that soma is a drink that probably contains the urine of deer who have eaten a certain mushroom.  A mushroom that is poisonous to humans. The deer don’t die from the mushroom and instead, they transfer all the mushroom’s magical goodies to the lucky people who get to drink their pee… At least that is the dream that the artist hopes we all can participate in - and he even put a bed in the reindeer stall that you can rent for like a couple thou a night and groove on the reindeer aura. Back to the pee… As you can see here, the artist has workers who meticulously collect the reindeer pee and store it in the fridge."  We stayed in actually pretty long, just sat on a bench behing the tinted window, and we asked ourselves, how exactly do they collect the pee ........ to be continued ..
