3 hours hike at Lake Chiemsee

Tomorrows (sunday) weather should get rainy and cold. So we decided to make our weekend hike tour this saturday. I have looked up a nice “Wanderung” in my “Hiking near bavarian lakes and river” book and must admit to have selected Lake Chiemsee because I know a nice Sushi Restaurant in Rosenheim, which I haven’t visited for a while. Christiane not liking Sushi likes that japanese restaurant (Mikado) too, because they serve also chinese food what is her favourite. After Hiking from Prien to Gstadt and sitting in the biergarden for a while, we took a boat back to Prien where we had parked the car. Hungry we arrived at Mikado and enjoed our food. We both enjoyed this wonderful day and both are happy to live in such a nice area.

Visitors from Switzerland and Detmold

This weekend Christiane’s friends Sonja and Tina visited us for 4 days. It’s always nice to have them as our guests. Friday evening we were having a Spanish Diner in Munich’s El Cortijo after a nice walk in the “Englischer Garten” and a good bavarian Beer in Seehaus Biergarten. Saturday I had more important things to do (last Bundesliga soccer game FC Bayern München – Dortmund (3:3) and championship car parade … “no woman no cry” ) so the girls were on their own driving to Chiemsee and having diner in our favourite Biergarten in Aying. Day by day weather got worse and on rainy Sunday we visited together the Munich Zoo Hellabrunn. Ending the evening with a big selfmade Spaghetti diner (women overcooked the Spaghetti, tststs … a italian tragedy) and “Nobody is perfect” family game with support of 3 bottles of wine. Nice weekend, although exhausting.

Deutscher Meister 2006: FC Bayern München

This saturday I was watching the last seasonal soccer match of my favourite club in the Munich Arena. It was great to see the championship party inside the new Munich Arena and the team car parade on the Leopoldstr. First Car with Oliver Kahn and Michael Ballack carrying the German Cup and the German Meisterschale. I was standing on Leopoldstr. near University U-Bahn station and the whole team passed by very slowly clapping hands with the fans. I will definetly repeat this on next championship win.

Discovered brilliant

Very proud and happy of having found John Fante for me and by myself. I am still in a period of beeing fascinated by the biography and personality of Charles Bukowski. (recommendation: “screams from the balcony”-letters and “Born into this” by John Dullaghan). Sooner or later when reading more about Buk, you will come across John Fante, italo-american writer born in 1909.  I gave a try to his first novel “Ask the dust” (in German: “Ich Arturu Bandini”) John Fantewhich I finished this weekend and I remained very impressed and touched. Having been in Downtown L.A. 3 month ago, and knowing the places around Bunker Hill where the story in “Ask the dust” is located, made the pleasure of reading the book even greater. Ordered two more novels from Fante. By accident I found this information today: Ask The dust (2006) Written & directed by Robert Towne; starring Colin Farrell, Salma Hayek & Donald Sutherland. In american cinemas since 16 march 2006. No release date for Germany, yet. Frightening this coincidence. You think having found some rare insider writer and Hollywood just picturized and released the novel you just read. Definitly I will see this movie. 

For me Bukowski is an interesting and fascinating  personality, but Fante is real great literature.
