Here’s my friend Ed enjoying a delicious cocktail: He has a food blog called Onehungryasian, which is what he is. It’s a tough life but he gets free things and sometimes he takes me with him.

Was suspiciously quiet at work today which meant I could dedicate a considerable amount of time to one of my all time favourite activities – looking up foreign office travel advice for unstable regions.

Everything’s fantastic, but I haven’t worked out how to turn on the light in the hallway, which means I have to walk (run) up the stairs in the dark. It’s a real test of character, […]Read more "Neukölln, 28th September"
I’m in Berlin. I arrived late and there was sort of a mysterious atmos in the air. Obviously I had no choice but to stalk across the airport concourse pretending to be a Cold War spy. Now I’m on the s Bahn and there’s this awful smell. It’s either fish or piss and I’m not […]Read more "Berlin Schoenefeld, 26th September"
