    Berlin. Clubs and pubs all weekend.

    • rosy 2.1

      Nice. For me, Vienna – inside in stifling heat because the other half has a slipped disc.

      I loved Berlin – if there is time dipping into one historical exhibition in your pubs and clubs trip I’d recommend stopping by the topography of terror.

    • freedom 2.2

      colour me green with envy,

      if you want to see some Art, there is a brand new show, including NZ artist Angela Dwyer, at George Kolbe Museum Sensburger Allee 25 Berlin

  3. JK 3

    Believe it or not – its been sunny and fine up north ! No sign of big bad weather.

  4. Rosetinted 4

    West Side Story – some great youtubes.
    Officer Krupke outlines social problems and delinquency. “This boy is only bad because he’s had a bad home life! Hey I’m depraved because I’m deprived!”
    And the dancing in Gym Mambo.
    And a song for Christchurch – Something’s Coming – Who Knows
    And unsettled people establishing their patch against immigrants who are unsettled amongst themselves – Puerto Rico, you lovely (or ugly) island.

    “Jesus for The Jugular”

    “would the fox be as quick if he hadn’t his hound?”

    Turn from The Rain

    “Daddy’s down the basement, talking to himself”

    “My Love is Winter”

    Like. Seventeen
