Installed Twitter

a fun way on the mobile phone to stay up-to-date with friends. Either super-cool or mega-stupid, I´ll have to try it before I decide

Mobile phones as the 7th Mass media

Incredibly on-the-spot article on media and how the mobile phone fits in with the previous mass media such as newspaper, TV, radio, Internet etc.

Theater in Munich

One month without posting - a shame for a professional blogger - which I ain´t... Christmas vacation, Travel to Laos and busy in the New Year are the reasons for non-blogging.

Went to Komödie in Bayerische Hof hotel on Friday, saw a comedy theater which was very funny and good. We saw DIE IST NICHT VON GESTERN (Born Yesterday / Blondinen küsst man nicht) Komödie von Garson Kanin.

Loved the main actress, did not know Marion Kracht from before but she had a great presence onstage and managed this role perfectly.

Wittelsbacher Platz Xmas market

is also very nice - I think this is the first year they have it, medevial theme, saw falconers and singers there yesterday - very traditional and nice.

Also - the Almrausch hut at Tollwood - true after-ski feeling - great place for a pre-Christmas Gluehwein!

Kytaro greek food

This place is still good and very "in", even after so many years where they were closed. Used to be on Innere Wiener Strasse, we were there often when we were new to Munich ca 15 years ago. Now since a couple of years reborn in the Königinstrasse, under the Reitachule.
