Sommer ist hier endlich da! Summer is finally here! After a somber winter and almost non-existent Spring, this past Saturday I strolled once again through the Haidhausen neighborhood to live that splendid European lifestyle. I was perched alone on a café terrace along Preysingerstraße where the trees filtered the morning sun. While reading the newspaper and sipping a coffee, the sounds of the clattering kitchen and a soothing jazz soundtrack poured through the windows. I smothered the flaky croissant before me in even more butter and topped it off with homemade chunky orange marmalade.
