day 132: down below: Gesundbrunnen
Just two subway stops from here is a mall. It’s quite big and I checked out a few shops the other day. I was surprised about the relatively big selection of gluten free products they sell in one of the shops and got myself a gluten free beer for the evening. Shame that they only sell lager, since I’m a big fan of dark beers. However, I’ve become less picky, since all I can get is a close approximation of the real thing. Once after trying out a different type of gluten free “bread” I called out “Wow, this almost tastes like … bread!”, but to be honest I hardly remember the taste. Same goes for most other processed foods. Coffee, nice yogurt, tiramisu, croissants, garlic bread, tortelloni and many other random things I miss. It’s like having lived in a different country and missing something that you can’t get at home. Just that it’s right in front of your nose all the time, but it would kill you in the long run. It’s so frustrating sometimes! However, you have to play the cards life deals you and it’s no use complaining about your fate all the time.
Well, I’m not complaining all the time. Every once in a while I’m allowed …
The picture was taken when trying to find a way out of the subway station at the mall. I got a bit lost and I think this part actually belongs to the train station. Close enough for the category “down below” though.
