Just a short tipp for the page which is listing novels by the cities in which they take place. Quite interesting to look and choose the next reading!

The Gunter Grass scandal

"Imagine your grandmother has never even allowed you to wear a minirock and when she turns 80 close to christmas is revealed she has worked as a prostitute when she was around 17" - there's no more precise analysis to the revelations of Günter Grass, that he and possible the current pope Benedict XVI., too, have been in the Waffen-SS by the end of Second World War but this biting glosse by Henrik M. Broder in Der Spiegel. Sorry, German only.

Currently listening to:
Dimmu Borgir - Stormblast 2005

Paris was a woman? This bitch!

... back from Paris, still in a train... and everything's different. Not everything. But a lot of things. No, I didn't fall in love with this bitch blasé. While I was the one and responsible person on the bus during the four previous days, the mature female mate in Düsseldorf and still the good-looking girl to go out with in Belgium I felt like an awkward child in Paris. Of course my cloth weren't expensive enough for our 5-star-hotel, but did they have to call me fillè? On the other hand – hey, I'm gonna be 30 in a few weeks and those professionally trained eyes adress me still as underage. Hihi. Compliment? Dunno. But not this bad.

I started reading "A Year In The Merde" by Steven Clarke, and it seems to me like the motto to my trip. Well, I didn't get this far - I am not an sexual frustrated male brit abroad, so I don't get the humour in all of his flirting accidents, but the rest seems right to fit to my situation in this strange metropolis as well.
