Essen Kray, Germany - 19th January 2009

By: BlackCat

Today we went to a part of Essen that is called Kray. BlackCat needed to get a package from the post office there so we went there all together. On the way back to a bus stop we saw this wonderful church. It is the St. Barbara church. BlackCats grandparents married in this church. Doesn’t it look nice?

Essen Steele, Germany - 23rd January 2009

By: BlackCat

That’s us in front of the pitman statue in Steele. Pitmen were really good for the city Essen, because they had a lot of coal mines here. Now there are only a few ones left and no one is still working, but this statue should remind you of the pitmen that did the work to make Essen to such a big city like it is now.

Essen Margarethenhöhe, Germany - 28th January 2009

By: BlackCat

Today we went with BlackCat when she visited her boyfriend at work. He is working in a company that is in the Margarethenhöhe.
The Margarethenhöhe is a jewel of the city. It is one of the loveliest examples of the German garden city idea. This area of the city is idyllic and was donated in 1906 by Margarethe Krupp on the occasion of her daughter Bertha’s wedding. Maximum two storeys high, comfortably equipped flats for workers and employees were developed following the plans of architect Georg Metzendorf. Even though the area gives a feeling of unity, no house is the same. Various design elements such as bow fronts and hedgerows, arched gables, plaster and natural stone foundations were used to give homes individual appearances. The estate has been under historical preservation since 1987.
It was really nice there but it was still dark, so the photos aren’t so good.

Today we made some cookies for the budgies of BlackCat. She found a recipe online how she can make cookies for her birds herself and wanted to try it. So we went with her in the kitchen and helped her as good as we could.

Looking for the grain feed

Putting an egg to the flour

Mixing it

Essen, Germany - 18th March 2009

By: BlackCat

Today BlackCat need to buy some birthday presents for friends. So I went with her to the Limbecker Platz! A big shopping hall in Essen.
It isn't ready until now. They are still building the second part which will be opened in autumn 2009.



The shopping centre is really nice inside. They have a lot nice places there.




Even a little playground for children is there.


That was a nice shopping hour.

Then we went back and I saw the mainstation. The mainstation is fixed up at the moment. There were a lot people working.



In front of the mainstation there is the Handelshof. It's a hotel and it has the emblem of Essen on it's top.


What a nice day. After that shopping tour I was really tired.

Have a nice day,

Today we all went with BlackCat into the youth centre. I was allowed to sing a song in the studio of the youth centre. Am I good or what?



So maybe I will produce my own CD. Who knows?

Essen Steele, Germany - 8th April 2009

By: BlackCat

It was not a really nice weather today, but BlackCat wanted to go to the Ruhr with us, so we went together.

On the way to the Ruhr we found this poster for the zoo of Gelsenkirchen. With a nice icebear on it :)!


And then we went to the Ruhr.



There we saw some ducks :)!


And some deafs, too.


It was nice. Then it started to rain so we went home again :)!
