Yet another immoderate Templeton-centric weblog

Live From Deutschland (Germany)
Berlin is one freaking awesome city. We can't beleive how awesome it is actually. So much history, art and vegan food! This is the Brandenburg Gate, right near the Reichstag
Deanna had to go get her broken arm checked out. We were hoping to get her pins out, but the German doctors determined that they should stay in for another two weeks. That is a super-bummer for Deanna.
They tweaked her arm and made her cry.
We have been cruising around like the full-blown tourists we are.
Berlin is filled with little surprises around every corner.
So much crazy architecture! Our friend Stewie would cream himself. The bombing of World War II, and the Berlin Wall/Cold War left a lot of extra space to play with, and they brought the best architects out to get gnarly.
This was the night Deanna got her new German cast and she was not amused.
This photo is for Stacy. She seems to like when people take the extra time to make the food into art. This was a Tomato-coconut cream soup from La Mano Verde, a fancy vegan restaurant. We really loved the food and the people at Hans-Wurst vegan cafe too. And they stay open late!
At La Mano Verde...
This is the sweet Akiko who works at Motto Bookstore, the best place to go to find rare small-edition artists' books and zines...
We went to Motto Books on the night of an opening, so there were tons of people enjoying some printed matter.
We went to visit the Pergamon Museum, and were blown away by the HUGE things that German archaeologists brought back from ancient lands back in the day.
Deanna was really excited because she saw this on Samantha Brown's Passport to Europe show.
A detail from the Ishtar gate of Babylon, one of the crazy-ass things the Germans brought back...
"Aphrodite gives me a half-chub..."
We went to the Gemaldegallerie (picture gallery) where we studied intensely the very old religious artwork.
"Wash my feet with your hair woman!" The disciples are like, "Damn!"
Chopping heads off of sleeping people was totally cool back then.
After getting out of the fountain of youth this recently old and haggard woman but now young and hot young girl goes into the tent to get some new clothes.
The tank at our hotel was getting cleaned by a guy with a sponge.
We sadly left Berlin and took a train ride to Dusseldorf. It was quite beautiful when we arrived!
We were walking down the street and were surprised to see a huge poster for Deanna's upcoming show!
And we shot photos at every one we saw after that!

Berlin is my favourite European city. I've never broken any bones and didn't realise you would need to get the cast taken off and checked from time to time. The holocaust memorial looks like a success, wasn't built when I was there last.

Right on, 2 totally amazing cities fur shur. We were told over and over that the people in Dusseldorf were the nicest around and its true! Though it was around christmas and everyone was off their faces with festivity. There was also a James Rizzi exhibition at some classy shopping centre when we were there.

Try Avanti Cafe, it is in the same parking lot as the Costa Mesa Mothers, over by the Pizza Hut. Very good vegan food and desserts. Changes each day.

If you are willing to buy a house, you will have to receive the loans. Furthermore, my sister usually takes a car loan, which seems to be the most rapid.
