As I wrote in my last post, I went to NYC to improve my English a little bit. Writing is still hard for me, but understanding and speaking is better as before. The first picture is a little restaurant at the 8th Avenue / West 38th Street in NYC where I was quite often at lunch time. They have a nice salad bar and the food was always fresh and delicious.
I visited a lot of places, especially museums but I loved to walk through the Prospect Park and to see the skaters in the Central Park too. I visited the Guggenheim Museum. It saw Rineke Dijkstras Retrospective there and Ghost in the Machine in the New Museum.
I found the High Line by accident. I saw a documentary about this place in Switzerland, but I forgot it entirely. But one day I walked the 14th Street from east to west, looked up and thought “Oliver, you know this old rail bridge.”
Oh, New York City. It was such a great experience! Greetings to all there, which I met. Special thanks to Heather and Nick. It was fun to stay at your home! On 10 August, I flew back.
One week later our family and friends of us went to the dOCUMENTA(13) in Kassel (Germany). After three weeks without my family it was nice to be reunited.
And the last two weeks? Now I’m a tenant in the gleis70 – Mixwerk here in Zurich. I have a table, a chair, power, internet and my computer.
I program, I watch the episodes of CleanCoders and I read a lot. I still try to help vert.x a little bit. But it is more difficult as expected. My first github pull request was rejected, because of to much structural changes.
