(one of the best headings ever, isn't it?)
Damn, I really need to buy sunglasses. It's summer
here, y'all and the goddamn sun is actuallye shining
and it's so fucking bright
(this makes a lot of sense if you were in Berlin or most other German towns this "summer"... it still feels as if the last time we saw the sun was sometime around May...). And it's obviously virtually impossible to find reasonably priced sunglasses here. Yes, this is a serious issue, guys! (and no, I didn't find a dollar store here yet, mackenziesmomma
. I'm starting to thinks this city doesn't have any)
In other news, went to Haight Ashbury, the Golden Gate Park and the California Academy of Science
today and it was awesome
(the Academy, that is... Haight Ashbury rather got on my nerves because all that "counter culture" hippy stuff does (sorry mom, your eldest daughter is a conservative at heart) but the Golden Gate Park is fun). Lots of that edutainment stuff I love so much and an aquarium. Having an aquarium is always a plus for me. The rainforest thing was nice, too buit I kept thinking I like the one in Tierpark Berlin
better. But, okay, there were chamelions. Chamelions are even as much my favorite animals as ant eaters are. Yes, I like WTF!Nature animals, why do you ask?
Oh, and I bought a coffee mug. Those among you familiar with my mug habit (such as schnelmi
) will probably go "What? Already? That was fast..." and the rest will go "And what's so interesting about that
?" The answer: I have a mug issue. I just can't go on traveling without buying at least one mug. But this one was so pretty
! I just had
ro buy it! Maybe I'll make a picture once I find a suitable cable to charge my camera (let's just not talk about that right now)...
What else... oh yes. What's with the "VAT not included" thing? Why do they do that in the US? What's so hard about putting the real
price of something on the price tag? They can do it in Germany (and most other European countries, if I remember it right), after all...
