Essen, Germany - 20th January 2015

By: BlackCat

Hey mum,

thank you for your message. Of course I am a good girl. I am behaving really good so far and didn't get in any trouble - yet.

Today we went to the post office to pick up Pitzelpatz (who is jet lagged and we didn't take photos together because of that). On our way there BlackCat showed me her part of town. The part is called Kray and you can see many old but still good looking houses.

We found some flowers who reminded us of spring and we really would like spring right now. It is cold here - only 0°Celsius. I am used to it, but BlackCat is freezing a lot and complaining about it...

I also took some photos with busses. Just to show you how they look like. On our way back home we took the bus and I even got a photo from the inside of the bus. Hope you like it.

The big place with the cars on it is the market square. BlackCat went to the farmers market here when she was still a kid with her grandma, as her grandma lived in the corner house that is on the photos as well. The one with the grey bay. Really nice building, but old.

And the place with the BILD sign in front of it and the Kiosk written on its windows is a typical kiosk for the ruhr area. They sell everything - from pet food to candy for kids. Newspapers, magazines, drinks - you can seriously get everything there and they are usually open longer than most stores. When BlackCat was a kid most of them were open 24/7 and you had to ring a bell when you came at night or when the owner had dinner and they came running because their apartment was usually right behind the kiosk - it's not like that anymore though.

Hugs from Germany
Arwen

Essen, Germany - 22nd January 2015

By: BlackCat

Hey mum,

today I joined BlackCat for work but as she was really busy I didn't get a tour of the office. But I was allowed to look at the places near the office when we left to go home.

There is an American diner with a Buddy Holly and a school bus as decoration, isn't it cool?

And the big metal thing is some kind of weird decoration for the area where the office is located. I am not sure why. There wasn't a sign or anything.

Love
Arwen

Essen, Germany - 23rd January 2015

By: BlackCat

Hey mum,

today we welcomed Miia here at BlackCats place.

She placed an envelope next to us and told us to be nice. So we waited until Miia showed her face to us and then welcomed her. She brought chocolate and Jonathan ate one bar before BlackCat could take a photo. Can you see the empty wrapper in his hands?

I am excited for our adventures together.

Love
Arwen

Essen, Germany - 24th January 2015

By: BlackCat

Hey mum,

when BlackCat woke up today she looked out of the window and was shocked. There was snow. First just a little, but it was getting more and more every minute. So when it stopped snowing she told us that one of Jonathan's life missions is to build a snowbunny and that we could go out and do it today. We asked if Miia and I were allowed to build a snowman as well and she told us that sure - it would be nice.

So we walked to the park near her house where all the kids were having fun on their sleighs or building a snowman and started with our work. On the photos you can see how successful we were. I was all excited about it.

Love
Arwen

Essen, Germany - 25th January 2015

By: BlackCat

Hey mum,

today we drove to the castle ruin in Essen as BlackCat said it would look nice in the snow. We also saw the church near it, which is really old as well and looks so awesome in the snow.

Back home we got a little bit of BlackCats chocolate croissant. We shared it and it was really nice.

Hope you like the photos.

Love
Arwen

Essen, Germany - 30th January 2015

By: BlackCat

Hey,

today we were waiting for the bus to take BlackCat and us to her work and it was snowing like crazy...we had to wait a full hour until a bus came (usually they come every 10 minutes in the morning). So we took some snow photos. We are only on one photo, it was too cold.

Love
Arwen

Hey mum,

today we had a walk with BlackCat in her neighborhood. She showed us some nice houses and we found a shop with wallpapers where we saw a really cute wallpaper.

It wasn't a long walk, but we saw some really nice houses and I hope you like the photos.

Love
Arwen

By: BlackCat

Hey mum,

today we joined BlackCat at work again. We were alone there so it was fun to jump around in the office.

Nothing special happened, we just wanted some photos of the office and the hallway in front of it.

Love
Arwen

Essen, Germany - 5th February 2015

By: BlackCat

Hey mum,

today we went to a concert, but to get there we had to stop at the main station, where they show different stuff out of Harry Potter every week now. So this week it was the horse from the chess play.

Of course we took a photo.

Love
Arwen

Cologne, Germany - 5th February 2015

By: BlackCat

Hey mum,

later that day we were in the city where the concert took place. We weren't allowed inside the bar, but we had a short stop at the Cologne main station and took a photo with the cathedral of Cologne, which is an UNESCO WHS.

Love
Arwen

Senden, Germany - 6th February 2015

By: BlackCat

Hey mum,

today we went to Senden, which is near the hometown of BlackCat's best friend. We drove there to go shopping and took some photos.

They have a lot of decoration like statues and such in Senden. You can see us with sheep, elephants and a fountain. We also saw the emblem of the city Senden. It was quite some fun.

Love
Arwen

Essen, Germany - 19th February 2015

By: BlackCat

Hey mum,

today we checked out the ice skating rink in the city and also met the statue of Alfred Krupp. He was a factory owner back when WWII was happening and did a lot of good stuff here in Essen.

The ice skating rink is always in the city from New Years til March. So we wanted to check and see how it is there.

Love
Arwen
