Afternoon Inertia.

July 11, 2013
Not that it’s at all interesting for most of you but – just to clarify – I’m in Berlin for a semester abroad i.e. ’til the end of August, so although the days ahead will be long, filled with scorching heat and blinding sun, I’ll be spending a lot of indoors wracking my brain in an effort to follow lecturers speaking in a foreign language…
Anyway, I’ve not started classes yet so I’ve spending my time resisting the lure of Döner kebabs and very cheap wine (didn’t quite manage to resist entirely on either of these) and soaking up the culture instead. So far…

^ Ludwig Wittgenstein exhibition at the Schwules Museum (Gay Museum)
A must for any philosophy fans – this exhibition uses letters and diary entries to give an insight into one of the 20th century’s most important thinkers. You can also view his tweed jacket and several fixtures from his house designed by acclaimed Austrian architect Paul Engelmann.

^ And a technically terrible, but somehow strangely likeable photo of what I wore (Wild Child jacket, American Apparel vest, Topman jeans, Grafters boots), and what I’ll probably wear to…


Lykke Li, when she performs at Astra Kulturhaus next week. Excited is not the word.

    Ana: Not gonna lie, hadn't really got a clue about him before I went to the exhibition. He has a cottage in Wicklow!? Didn't glean that from the exhibition…C.

    I am incredibly jealous of your months in Berlin, I am hoping to try and fit a sojorn there this summer (third times a charm). What area are you living in?

    Mat: True that, might use that Raf reference in the future! I'm on ERASMUS since I study German.Zoe: Right now, I'm in Friedrichshain but moving to Mitte/Prenzlauer Berg in a few weeks! Can hardly wait!C.
