We spent the evening at the Staatstheater in Munich today. We enjoyed the "sleeping beauty". Everything was amazing, but I liked especially the costumes.
On the way home I rehearsed my "slipping into the new year" if you know what I mean ;)
Merry Christmas to everyone!

This is not part of a space engineering program, it is a german coffee machine! A bit old though, the company says that if it breaks down, they will not fix it...
I'm not sure how it works but in any case I still prefer the refreshing greek frappe.
Kaffee und Kuchen irgendjemand?
p.s. It also makes tea ;)

Photo taken 6 years ago in the, back then, magnificent Piso Gialia beach in Andros. Now this beach has some real houses of far lesser design and features a loud mainstream beach bar. RIP.

I wanted to share with you the stollen I am making, and since you are so far away, I decided to post a picture while it's baking.
When trying to capture the perfect smell, I got this picture!! What does it look like to you? To me, it's something like --> this <-- data-blogger-escaped-br="">

Back after some days away in magnificent Krakow. And, as promised, here it comes the first photo. This polyharmonic acoustic generator (a.k.a. piano) was spotted near Sukiennice, placed there for the celebration of Chopin year.
Several more, including a severely broken one in a plexiglass container, were placed around the city. At some bus stops Chopin kept company to the waiting and freezing passengers.
This is the proof I promised!
This bed is found in one of the rooms of the restaurant/bar/house I mentioned in the previous post. Of course, it is one the many items you find spread all around.
Where would you like to have your cocktail tonight? In the bedroom? In the bathroom? In the living room?
In our case, we just threw our coats on the bed!

If you ever find yourself in Berlin, and you see in the catalog something like:
"Berliner weisse gruen/rot" please don't try it! You will get the green stuff in the picture!!!
Ok, it is not that bad... But it is NOT beer!
There is only one place in the world where you can order beer eyes closed. That place is Munich.-
(Ok, Gilles maybe also in Belgium...)

In this picture we have:
the city hall (or else the Rathaus -> Haus of the rats!),
the two towers of Frauenkirche; the city's cathedral,
the golden statue of the Mother of Jesus and
the Christmas tree!
Please, step in for some steaming hot Glühwein!

Happy name day Niko Niki e.t.c.!
Photo taken in Zaganiari... Guess the patron saint of the church. On bottom right the famous Old Zaganiari Bridge.
[Kostas still in Krakow, can't transfer beautiful snowy images to computer! Promise to do it later!]
