Coffee at Starbucks?

You will find me at Starbucks quite often only because it is one of the most centrally located coffee shops in the Bonn city centre. Also, it is one of the places that is ideal for idling. Ideal because it provides the perfect set up for a Sunday afternoon when you can't think of a place to go but would still like to go someplace other than the house which only reminds you of cleaning and vacuuming. I have killed numerous hours there - reading, clicking pics of random people, of coffee mugs, of passers-by. I have spent several unyielding minutes waiting for friends who have agreed to Starbucks as the meeting point. I have been introduced to many new people and have bumped into others whose names I was close to forgetting. And on all of these occassions, I have guiltily devoured many milky, creamy cups of capuccinos and frappes. Ocassionally, I have also given into extreme indulgence and got myself one of those sinful pieces of bliss with an equally irresistible name.

It was on one such dull Sunday afternoon which I spent on one of those green couches that I treated myself to this.

the expanse beyond

"The sea was wet as wet could be,
The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
No cloud was in the sky;
No birds were flying overhead--
There were no birds to fly."

church steeple

Church steeple in the old city of Warsaw. The old town square, resembling a quaint provincial town, almost like a film-set.

narrow cobbled streets

Uneven, puddled, narrow, dark, dimly lit, enticing. Characteristically - Prague.

Bonn University

On the road behind Bonn University, when I was lazing at cafe Einstein, this is what vroomed past.

black n white

On a typically freezing dark winter day, life seemed confined to black, white and shades of grey...
