Summer has gone away to let room for the Autumn to kick in. Leaves are changing to colours ranging from green to red and orange and yellow, and the brown leaves are covering all the streets.
Can’t believe it’s already been more then a month since my last post. Feels like someone has put my life on 45 rpm (45 giri – ITA) vinyl record.
Today is moving day. This morning at 9 I got the keys to my sweet new apartment in Kreuzberg – Berlin. East side yeah For who is not familiar with Berlin, Kreuzberg is the most happening place in town. Awesome night life and art/design scene which co-exist along with a major Turkish community. My new apartment is situated between a lovely park, and an extremely nice water canal. So I am officially open for visitors as of today
It’s the first time I’m moving to my own place in a foreign country. which is an exciting and frightening experience both at the same time. It feels like closing a chapter in life. Back in Turin, living together with other people has brought Diego in to my life, along with Massi, Sabi, Luca, Erica and Ale into my life in via Perosa. So many good times together. so much joy. then in Via san secondo 101, the mythic apartment who has brought in my life yet again some really important people: Sami and Lior who I miss both and so happy to have shared a piece of my life with… Orren, which didn’t really have it planed out to share an apartment with me, but I think both of us share the feeling that it was great for both of us, sharing 4 months together in his apartment. Living together with other people can be difficult for sure, but It is a wonderful and irreplaceable experience which I now leave behind. So a new era begins. and I will upload some photos as soon as I will get an Internet connection there.
Orren, you are a marvellous person who should really acknowledge that fact, and you only made me see how I should be better, and how much I have to learn from you. No wonder the people around you love you so much. You just need to find more time for them :p
Yom Kipur and Sukot passed for the first time in my life without me even noticing them, and if not for the calls and messages wishing an easy kipur and hag sameach, I would never would have guessed. My only Israeli connection in this moment is the new Aroma espresso bar that opened in Berlin, For real, right near Check point charlie, where you can hear people ordering their coffee in Hebrew, just like you would in Givatayim.
I have to admit, that routine has kicked in, and all the things that seem so fabulous at the beginning, you get used to. Of course I sometimes look at the lake in-front of the office and think how nice it is, and I really enjoy riding my bicycle through the forest in the morning when I go to work, and enjoy clean air and amazing nature. At the end, it’s not how nice the building is, or how lovely the road is, but it’s the little experiences, and the people you meet, and how you deal with each day. and that’s what I’m learning here.
I will be glad to keep on writing, but actually I’m right in the middle of moving, and I have to pack my computer, and say goodbye to the Internet community for a while. no more facebook, no more messenger until I get my connection at the new place.
