Links in Berlin: All rain

Since starting this new series, every week it made me happy to find so many inspiring links all around the web which expressing the city’s spirit. With summer just around the corner, there are already more than 10 editions of Links in Berlin and we’re looking forward to many more. Feel free to share your own favorite reads about this beautiful city tagging them #linksinberlin on twitter or Facebook and I’ll be happy to include them in future editions. Until then enjoy our round-up of the best of Berlin’s blogs (and some news):

Discover This: Xposed International Queer Film Festival

A little hung over, a little cold, a little lazy and ready to watch some films tonight? I’m sure that description fits most Berliners on this gloomy holiday, and – for Christ’s sake it’s Ascension Day! – so let’s all start a heavenly journey to Moviemento and see some sexy and unholy queer films and have a little party at Südblock afterwards. Yes, it’s time for Xposed again and -come on-who wouldn’t love to discover some hot 1960s experimental films by a Swedish underground pioneer slash heroine, watch the new kinky compilation film by art-pornographer Antonio da Silva and listen to Antony and the Johnsons during the opening film?! So get your asses off the couch and start a little pilgrimage to Kottbusser Damm where the next 3 ½ days will be filled with exciting cinematic trips, programmed with love, lust and experience.

Chickpeas in Berlin: Al Pasha

When my dear mother rolled through town the other day, we had no plans other than enjoying all the food the city has to offer. Being nurtured by her home cooking and baking, I can only remember a few culinary adventures with ingredients used in non-German cooking. Like watching soy bean sprouts grow besides the kitchen sink for weeks and then spice up some salad.
When we found ourselves wandering around the sunny streets of Berlin, suddenly it was my turn to introduce her to some of the best food from foreign cuisines: like the culinary chickpea spectacle at Al Pasha, where some of the best hummus in Berlin is served.

Links in Berlin: Now it’s too hot.

Summer hit Berlin, pushing us citizens with temperatures that can only be called “too hot” – where is this weather-glory leading, you might ask. Will we have an endless summer? Weeks of sun and shine ahead?
At least, tomorrow there’ll be rain and slightly cooler temperatures. A good day to read all the links we’re suggesting in this very post. Because Sunday it’s great weather again (!), so we’ll head to the parks and lakes (after we fulfilled our citizen-duty and voted, of course).
