Erika Mayr: Bees In The City

My friends Anna and Marcus have recently launched Viertel Vor, a blog about sustainability. Many of their articles are more than just critical views or green ideology. In fact, their most striking articles revolve about urban life. They generously let me excerpt and comment on their interview of urban beekeeper Erika Mayr.

Cherryblossom-Festival at Gärten der Welt

Our expectations about the Cherry Blossom Festival at the Gärten der Welt in Marzahn weren't particularly high. We were excited to get out of the usual routine for once and escape into a new world. A world in which we would wade in cherry blossoms and soft light, with likeminded fellow romantics and a soft Asian soundtrack in the background...

Autumn Mist

  In case you've missed it: Yesterday's dense fog didn't leave any doubts that autumn has finally arrived. Upon coming home to Kreuzberg I was amazed about the city being densely covered with thick mist – an intense sight we didn't have in a long time. The temperature dropped by six degrees within few hours, hitting bottom at a freezing point. My fingers were stiff but I was happy to take this opportunity to gather some nice impressions. I don't want to loose many words, but enjoy for yourself how beautiful and eery the very same Oberbaumbrücke, where we used to enjoy lovely sundowns only few months ago, sat enthroned over the Spree yesterday.
