Just a quick sketch of the mountain of Spargel I ate when visiting Beelitz, the small hometown of Spargel just south of Berlin. Spargel is a Brandenburg obsession - it is a form of asparagas grown underground, and comes served with a healthy helping of butter sauce...

And here is a great illustration of it from Wikimedia Commons:

Pleasure Craft

Conor and I made a small Ausflug out of Berlin last weekend. We took the train out to Storkow and biked around the lake to the south side of Bad Saarow. We rowed a boat out on the lake for a turnabout, where we couldn't believe our eyes.... THIS is how you boat, people.
