After the (cold) war who should I be sanding for
Power to the flower
Keep it simple
I did a daytrip to London today to do a portait job that lasted 10 minutes. Which meant I had time to quickly see my friends, pick up mail from my old studio, go to the bank and cash cheques (we are approaching the year 2010 and English clients still send cheques!!!??? Have they missed the last 30 years of technical evolution?), eat an english breakfast (delicious) and pop London’s new great coffee bar, Wiltons, in Hackney. Liz (Australian) and Alicia (Kiwi) brews excellent coffee and makes yummy grub. Is it a reason why all coffee bars in London now employ people from New Zealand and Australia?

Often when I mention to a German that I live in Kreuzberg, they usually mention that it is a dangerous place in the same sentence that lots of Turkish people live there. Yes, there are a lot of Turkish people, but no it is not dangerous at all here. I feel more safe walking home at three in the morning here than in Oslo. Sadly the Turkish community is not very well integrated in to the German life, but I don’t think there is only one party to blame. Sercon portrayed today said most Turkish people don’t like being photographed since it often ends up being in a negative context. He was very polite and seemed to only want to enjoy life like the rest of us.
