Games Convention

Wednesday night Aki called to tell us he’d go to Games Convention (a consumer video game show) on Thursday and asked us if we wanted to meet him there. Mikey and I had already thought about maybe going there but weren’t sure whether it’d be worth it. But, since we didn’t have anything better to do anyway and it’s only a two hour drive from where we live, we decided to meet him there.

Unfortunately our worst fears got confirmed there. But more on that later. When we first got there we were surprised by the amount of middle aged people. Until we noticed that they were just parents accompanying their underage kids (and later sat around in some corner waiting for their kid to come back from his gaming spree).

open air movie

Just got back from one of the open air movie theaters that come to life in Berlin in summer. We saw Spirited Away again. Ah, I like that movie. That particular theater has beach chairs you can sit in (well you lie more than you sit) while watching the movie. It's great. So as we were lying there, enjoying the movie, there was suddenly this huge (and I mean _extremely_ bright) shooting star right above the screen. Nice! And later ISS passed us as well. Whee! Those beach chairs are really something. For that I'll gladly take a couple of mosquito bites...

A little luck

My cell phone's a/c adaptor has been found. Yay! Mikey's mom found it and his dad wrote us an email that they already sent it on its way to Berlin. That's really good news. I was already fearing I'd have to buy a new one...

We spent the day relaxing on the shores of Wannsee (one of the many Berlin lakes). It was great. The water had a perfect temperature. Bad thing is that I burned my back even though I spent most of the day in the shade of a tree. I have no idea how this could happen. I guess the leaves were too far apart in places or something.

Well Great...

We're back in Berlin and I just noticed that my cell phone's power adaptor seems to be missing. I cannot find it anywhere. Looks like it got left at Mikey's family's place. Great. Just what I needed right now...

In other news: we brought Mikey's little sister with us so she doesn't bore herself to death during summer break. Saturday we went to the museum of musical instruments. It's quite interesting. Lots of old instruments. The cool part is the cinema organ they have there. It's from back in the day when movies where silent. It can do all kinds of sounds, like a bird chirping, sleigh bells, etc. Every saturday there's a guy there playing it. It was very impressive.

Tormorrow we'll probably go to one of the lakes in Berlin because it is too fucking hot to do anything else really.
