You know how young men are; they love to show off their wheels, just like the guy in today’s photo post. He’s cute, isn’t he? He has a nice smile and a great physique. Judging from the photograph he lives somewhere in horse country. I wonder exactly where?
We rose relatively early this morning. I went to the corner bakery for fresh rolls. After breakfast, we took the U-Bahn to the Zoologischer Station, where we rented bicycles. Then we rode throughout the Tiergartan, a beautiful public park with lots of shaded paths, flower gardens and statuary. There’s a nice monument honoring Beethoven, Haydn and Mozart, and another honoring Russian soldiers killed in the WWII Battle of Berlin. The latter is constructed from marble once used in Hitler’s Berlin chancellery. All very cool stuff.
We did have a bit of rain during our journey, but not for long. Now we’re home and the sun’s back out. The temperature’s around 68 degrees F, really refreshing and quite the change for Florida’s stinky summer heat. I have so much more energy here.
Tonight we’re going to a street festival in the Kreuzberg district, where I lived during summer of 2005. It’s full of nice architecture and good restaurants and clubs, including a great gay club called Schwuz. I have danced there into the wee hours, more times than I care to admit. The music’s great and the beer’s pretty cheap, and there’s always a crowd on weekends. So, maybe we’ll do a bit of dancing tonight.
Wherever you are, I hope you’re enjoying your Friday. Get out and do something tonight. If Old Man Martin can hits the streets and clubs of Berlin, you can too.
