Just relaxing and watching movies

Today I woke up late as I had not a special plan for the day. I ate breakfast with my host mother and we talked about pets, about her older pets and about the pets from my parents. Such basic talks were prepared so often in school and now it wasn’t such a big deal for me to talk about these things.

After the breakfast I watched some movies. Afterwards I remembered that I don’t have water here anymore, so I decided to go out and buy some.

When I came back from the supermarket I got everything, some food and a new shower gel except the water I planned to buy. Of course I forgot the thing that I even went out to get.

The problem with the shoe shops

This weekend I tried to get a fitting pair of shoes, again.
My current shoes are starting to fall apart although they are not that old, but all the clothing stores and shoe shops I’ve been to so far do not have my size in stock or available at all.
I have a similar problem in Germany, its just not this bad.

After I tried three different stores today, I came home, slightly frustrated.
In front of the house where I’m staying was a car with its hazard lights on, standing in the leftmost lane. As this is a common sight in Berlin I thought nothing of it, until I heard the man trying again and again to start the engine.
I walked over to him and (as it was a very small car) offered to push him out of the lane of the busy road. It is an A-road after all.
He agreed, but did not turn into the driveway, after asking why he told me he thought I meant the car workshop up the road.

So, after clearing that up I pushed him there (again, it was a very small car).
He thanked me and jokingly said: „Saved you the trip to gym, haven’t I?“.

The play that goes wrong

After my jogging tour on Sunday I was in a rush. Because I was arranged with a new acquaintance to visit a theatre play. Fortunately, I arrived ten minutes earlier at Charing cross so there was even some to let myself advise about my Oyster Card. We met and looked for a meal. My acquaintance hit on the idea that I could have a look at a nice guide book for restaurant recommendations which I had bought yesterday at Tate Modern. We went to Pizzeria MOD Pizza. The doorman was attracting people. When I told him the way we found the restaurant he wanted to see the recommendation and showed my guide book to his colleagues. As soon as my pizza was ready, we went on our way straight to the theatre house. I was eating my pizza and when we arrived and let check our rucksacks the security forbid me to take my pizza into the lobby. After finishing the pizza outside we were short of time. But he my acquaintance collected the tickets already. Although most of the audience had sat already the play had not begun when we took our seats. There were very funny scenes and the way it was played was also nice. I would like to see another play by the same authors too. And I would definitely go to his theatre play again – whoever will come with me.

Tour through the city

This Saturday we decided to go to the city center early in the morning. The plan was to browse the St Georges Market again, to find souvenirs for our relatives in Germany and later to look for an opportunity to buy some clothes. „Tour through the city“ weiterlesen
