Football fever

So, it has started. World Championship in Football. Strange - it is my 2nd one in Germany. I was here for 6 months in 2006 and so I am here now...
Things that got changed - there are German flags all over; cars have 2 or 4 flags plus ome of them have "socks" on the car mirrors - looking as flags. OMG!
On top of that - there is those "trumpet" sounds all over and some kind of fireworks applied already now - at the first game for Germany. I don't know what's gonna happen in case they win... But maybe not my problem - maybe I'll be on holidays by then :)

The past week was very warm and humid. It was hard to breathe ;) But this weekend was a bit cool and cloudy. Alex came on Fri evening and yesterday we celebrated Monica's birthday. First a dinner at a new (for us) Italian restaurant in Altona (Cuore Mio), then some cuba libres in a bar while watching USA - England. We supported the US (for Dennis who was with us), actually England didn't really perform.
Today it was a lazy day...

The week hopefully will pass fast. On Fri - flight to Gdansk. Cool cause Filip will also come.

And then 3 weeks more and holidays! Can't wait!

So...only one blog in May... But that's what happens when you are away for 3 weekends in a row. After GBG, it was turn for Budapest. 24th May was a day off so I had a long weekend in BUD. It was 26C and sun - so different than the weather in HH. We walked in the city, went to Margaret's island - on Danube. Man made island - probably a popular place for Party's people during communist times. Now a sort of recreational place, with a track for running - ca 5 km long. Tennis courts, swimming pools, quite ok. We also went around the Parliament building and did some shopping downtown.

The weekend after was Sthlm and Kristin's and Kicos wedding. We stayed in a flat in Solna - arranged by Christer's sister. Alex arrived late on Fri. On Sat we went a bit around Gamla Stan and had a lunch downtown. Then quickly shower and change and went to the church. On the way there it started raining. Crap. But then during the party it got better so the night was nice. The party was really nice, with many beautiful speaches, a great atmosphere and a perfect band playing good songs. Nice!!! And my new heels were also good and didn't cause many problems ;-)
Sunday was a bit tough. Alex had to leave already at 5 AM to the airport. He landed in BUD by the time, I left to downtown Sthlm. A bit of shopping and lunch and then plane to Poland for a workshop. The week was a bit tough, and also the weather in Wroclaw sucked. Rain and 11C :-(

Now it's a great weekend in HH. Summer is here! At least for now :)
We just had a nice BBQ in the park.
Only 1 month and I have holidays!!
