Growing up, my most fond memories was visiting abandoned places with my brother. To this day, if opportunity presents itself, I bring my camera and take a few pictures. These are not my work ofcourse, but I hope you enjoy the visual beauty and maybe it brings fond memories of your own adventures.

SO MUCH THIS.

Story of Elizabeth who was going through chemo and she wanted a Henna crown because she was going to attend an Indian wedding. Now this is how you accept the Indian culture truly beautiful :D

Feuerzangenbowle is a traditional German alcoholic drink which is often part of a Christmas or New Year’s Eve tradition.
It is prepared in a bowl, similar to a fondue set, which usually is suspended over a small burner (rechaud). The bowl is filled with heated dry red wine spiced with cinnamon sticks, cloves and orange peel, similar to mulledwine. The Feuerzange was originally a pair of tongs, but nowadays it is common for a purpose-designed metal grate mounted on top of the bowl to hold the Zuckerhut (sugarloaf or literally “sugar hat”), a sugar cone around seven inches long. The sugar is soaked with rum and set alight, melting and caramelizing. The rum should have at least 54% alcohol per volume and be at room temperature in order to burn properly. More rum is poured with a ladle until all the sugar has melted and mixed with the wine. The resulting punch is served in mugs while the burner keeps the bowl warm. For some the ceremony is more important than the drink itself, celebrating the gathering of friends and conveying a notion of Gemütlichkeit.
The members of the “Buchstabenmuseum” society have made it their business to keep those old signs, which formerly have given public space its determined appearance, as pieces of an exhibition “alive”. At the moment the museum is moving to a new location. On 12/6/2013 at 7pm the new home for the letters will be inaugurated near the Alexanderplatz. Regular exhibition starts on 12/7/2013. The signs have been partly donated but have also very often been saved from scrapping etc. by the society members, after negotiating with the respective owners. New members, donated money and photos of signs, independent of languages and scripts, along with contacts to the owners are welcome. Further on the museum still is in need of a final location.
