Bon appetit - Mustafa´s Gemüse Kebab • Detlef

Mustafa´s Gemüse Kebab seems to be recommended in every Berlin tourist guide.
People are queing almost around the block.
Wheater the kebab is really that extraordinary? I can´t say. I have to admit I never tried it.

Beach - Urbanhafen Berlin • Detlef

In summer hundreds of people come to the green banks of the Landwehrkanal in Kreuzberg to enjoy the sun and the sunset on the wide basin of the canal, having a picknick, playing music , or just relax.
it might not be literally a beach, but it meets the atmosphere... and sometime people even go for a swim...

People on the way • Aurore

It's been a long time I wanted to sketch the Eritrean community coming to celebrate its weddings in the park of the old city and on Jaffa beach !

Every week end almost, a new group appears, always dressed in white with architectural hair style.
They are all dressed in white in the same costume with a pattern that define them as a group, only the groom and the bride has a different color of pattern.

They are simply beautiful…

Beaches, parks and people

Well we don;t have a see in Berlin, but we have many lakes. Here is my drawing for Nathan Sketchbook.
A friend who lives at Halensee lake invited a bunch of friends to a bbq and bath, the villa had direct access to the lake.

This is my last drawing on my sketchbook. Saturday and Sunday there is a Thai pick-nick in Preussenpark in Berlin, Normally is not possible to put a kiosk to sell food on a park, but you can have a pick nick So many Asian people sit on blankets under an umbrella offering the food they prepare there. A huge crowd of people gathers around to eat, sit and enjoy the good weather.

"Beach" in Berlin

No, Berlin is not a city by the sea. But yes, we have some beaches and a lot of water (the Spree-river and many lakes). The biggest lakes are Wannsee, Müggelsee and Tegeler See. Today I made a bike tour with my family around the Tegeler See and in the end I sketched the beach in Saatwinkel in the late afternoon sun. It's 20 minutes from my home by bike. We live near the lake.

"Your city - your story" from Marina and Nathan

Katrin's book is full!

Last week I invited my friend Nathan to meet in Tel Aviv and to try to fill our entries.

As we do some sketching projects together, Nathan and I meet very often, almost always in Tel Aviv, so my story of Tel Aviv naturally includes... Nathan ;)
We started our meeting with a good plate of humus, sitting at on of the corners of the HaCarmel Market in Tel Aviv.
 Here I captured one of the streets near the market, were you can still meet old professions, like this shoemaker, repairing shoes and bags on the street:
 Here are Nathan's entries, he sketched... me! eating the humus ;)
 and another character from the same street - the barber taking a rest and drinking some coffee.
The sketchbook is coming with me to Manchester, where I'm going to give it to Omar.
