day 25: fire shadows
Yesterday I was on the phone to a friend looking out of the window. I said to him “Sorry, I need to go, the sky just turned into fire”. I grabbed my camera and was out of the door. However, I knew that I would miss the moment before I would reach a spot where I had a clear view onto the sunset. I should have gone out the door when the sky started getting a yellowish tint. Well, could have, would have, should have … and indeed I missed the moment and it was already almost dark when I reached the nearest bridge. However, yesterday’s picture has at least a hint of what it was looking like in the sky.
Also, I have good news: I finally finished my MSc dissertation! This morning I wrote the conclusions and then sent it to my supervisor to have a quick look at it. Meanwhile I will be going to England. In fact I need to take the public transport to the airport in about two hours. The airport I have to go to is at the other end of town and it will take me about an hour to get there. Annoying, since I live about ten minutes from the other airport in Berlin.
There is actually one thing I’m worried about: I’m only taking hand-luggage and I have my tango shoes in there. They have 10 cm heels and I wouldn’t be surprised if they’d consider them as a weapon …
