Spring has sprung.
There’s a lot going on in Frankfurt! I decided to stay local this month and it’s been a month full of friends, trying new things and exploring the city. Here’s a little “best-of” roundup. Not pictured: weekly bachata lessons after work with Jo.
Easter bunny bread!
The weather has been so warm and the trees are blooming (and now shedding). The smells, colors, new life is really inspiring.
We had our first river picnic and I had to introduce everyone to Firefly (mom, dad, bring more!)
I’ve had time to bake again! Above is cauliflower crust pizza.
I finally got to see a musical at the Alte Oper (my favorite building in Frankfurt). Unfortunately, they didn’t mention we couldn’t take our drinks to our seats…bottoms up!
There was a Syrian demonstration after the chemical attack. They were chanting “Freiheit für Syrien”, which means Freedom for Syria.
I got to explore some beautiful countryside on a daylong bike ride with my former colleague Yasemin. We stopped by lakes, castles, fields of flowers. Looking forward to doing more exploring in summer.
I went to a “restaurant” I’ve been dying to try for a long time. They don’t really have regular opening days, it’s hidden and you have to buzz to get in. But once you arrive, it’s like a secret club with communal tables, great music and amazing food. I’m definitely going back soon!
