Well…actually I’m not really having time to write. Actually I’m quite busy at the moment: I enjoy my life to the fullest.
I’m having less time to write because, unlike in California, I am allowed to work here in my new life in Mexico – and I love my work, so you’ll meet me there many hours a day. And also I have met so many nice people what leads to that my spare time is pretty planned too. Result Continue reading “Nevado de Toluca”
Drip. Drip. Drop. My tears were dropping while dividing all my belongings in different piles:
1. has to come with me,
2. should come with me,
3. I’d like to take it with me,
4. if there’s still enough space I’d love to have that with me as well,
6. giving away,
7. throw away…

While you were wraping and unwraping (ideally not the same ones) Christmas presents I’ve packed moving boxes with our belongings. We have a new apartment! The lease of our old one in Sunnyvale expired and we had been looking for alternatives. We wanted to move a bit closer to Stanford – the Continue reading “A new apartment. A new flight ticket. And eventually everything makes sense.”
Rrrrrrrrrring. 5:15 am. Yawn. I open my eyes. I can not see anything. Oh God. Oh, right. It’s still dark. I go to the bathroom and turn on the light. Still, can’t see nothing. Eyes are swollen. Uh-oh. But bravely I throw myself into the shower – after all, I want to be at the beach at sunrise. I got Continue reading “Photography Class with David Coleman, at Pescadero Beach, California”
Boom! Hot! Perspiration! On December 29th! Yes, well, we’re in the desert, that’s right – you might expect some warmth … But last year we were in Death Valley. Also a desert. And it was pretty cold there and we had to freeze. So we were wiser this time and packed all fleece sweaters, scarves and hoods.
And now I’m in the desert Continue reading “Joshua Tree National Park – Vacation in the desert”
Beverly Hills…Santa Monica…Hollywood…Glitter…Glamor…Girls-Girls-Girls…
Girls-Girls-Girls??? I’m torn out of my thoughts.
“There…there is a nightclub. Girls Girls Girls it’s called. I thought teht da geschrieben. I thought something like a red-light-district is something like banned in the US?”
“Hmm, I think it’s okay when they call it a Cabaret Show.” thinks Matthias.
Cabaret-Show? Well, so the girls here have to be funny as well? As it were Stand-up Comedy… Continue reading “L(ovely) G(reetings) from L(os) A(ngeles)”
“THAT’S. IT! NO. MORE!” I gasp. Pupils are maximally dilated, knees soft. I think – I’m in shock!
To blame is the gold striker in Great America.

40 years of Kiki – that sounds like a really, REALLY long time. Whew. Admittedly, I was not too thrilled to have to leave the thirties. But sometimes you just have bad luck.
Well then, if I have to celebrate my fortieth birthday, then at least decent – who knows how long I can still do that … to celebrate properly and so. I do not get younger! Continue reading “40 years of Kiki”
What a trip! The Pinnacles national park always is great! The 9 miles hike feels more like a walk than a hike. Geez, THAT sounds so snot-nosed, hahaha, but either it’s just like that – or my calculations are wrong and it’s not 9 miles …
However: Continue reading “Alcatraz – and the story why it smells if you (don’t) let some air in”
Who loves nature HAS to visit Yosemite National Park. So Conni *) and I check out the road conditions and then check into Carsten **).
In Yosemite everbody can find his favourite place to be – no matter of being a climber, a hiker, a stroller or a “car-hiker”. We decide for the last two opportunities and want to cruise the Tioga-Pass-Road. On this road you cross the entire park and get a great, no, GREAT impression of this huge natural scenery.
