USA Diaries Part 3

A Man’s Castle

How would you feel if you were told the one thing you can’t miss out on in an art exhibition were the toilets? Confused? Possibly reconsidering your visit because if a toilet is the highlight, how much less interesting is the exhibition going to be, right? Out of the top of my head, I can imagine at least three things that interest me more than the image of a toilet: your coffee, the cars driving down the street and the ornaments on the Christmas tree. However, I  for one, felt fooled.

Holly Jolly Christmas Market

Old Father Christmas with his mistletoe crown and snowy beard made his way to Potsdam, Germany, turning the city into Yule’s downtown. Even though the stores were mostly closed, the streets were alive with people. The Christmas market in the heart of the city couldn’t be a clearer indication of a jolly Christmas as people were mingling and coming together in the bright lights.

Christmas Garden Berlin

fall-304509_960_720

Silver Bells. It’s Christmas time in the city. As city sidewalks and busy sidewalks compared to a walking highway, I escaped to a place where fairytale meets fantasy: the Christmas Gardens of Berlin. Following over 1.5 million twinkling dots of light, I began my magical walk through a winter oasis.

Eating with Friends

Integrating Refugees While Breaking Bread

jam-32090_960_720

 Food is a universal language that knows no grammar or words, channeling its information over all our five senses. To me, it represents love, happiness and comfort. Love is the creamy wedding cake standing on the dining table at the parents’ house in the middle of June. Happiness is a serving of fries dipped in sauce at a local bar we share with friends. And last, but not least, comfort is a hot chocolate warming us up during a cold winter night.
