Chillin'

This blog is chillin' and waiting for all the things that happened since April to go up at sooome or other juncture, but in the meantime there are more current vibes over here.

April day in Amsterdam

We escaped the airport for a few hours and then evaded the cold of the city for a bit to hang out with the hipsters in a new Starbucks concept store.

But after all the frietjes, coffee, and lots of fun flower-bulb shapes, it was time to KLM it back to Germany.

So let's pretend March is relevant?

Instead of another rant about posting about looong forgotten events, I'll just refer you to the origin of the name of this blog. Done.

Let's go back to the Langkloof in March, okay? Okay.

Langkloof landscape

Some Langkloof animals, but since the internet is already full of cats...

Here are some dogs and a lizard, too

Finally, the next time you're roaring down this Route 62, stop in at Kannabos Cacti and Succulents for the most beautiful collection of plants ever.

Estonian X Afrikaans

Since I'm totally behind on picture posting I'll just do something else as an aside...

Not only has every step of the administrative process of applying to the University of Tartu been super effortless and everyone really friendly, I've also just discovered that I apparently get a tutor. The Estonian music video below is courtesy of his introductory email. Naturally the concept immediately reminded me of Die Vraagstuk by Die Heuwels Fantasties featuring Jack Parow. Two tiny languages at opposite ends of the earth, doing their thing in comparable ways. Do you know other videos that use this concept?
