send in the clowns

So, now that heads have presumably rolled at Google HQ, I'm back to my colourful, gallivanting ways! These pictures were taken in Bonn, and actually, I'm back in Bonn for the weekend, but since my blog doesn't start to pretend to be up-to-date, you won't see evidence of that immediately. : )

I find myself at a rare loss for words, so let's sum this up with circus = awesome, except in Mexico where they kept something like 8 tigers locked up in a cage together all day long, which was not cool. But the Germans have better regulations about these things, so I felt no qualms whatsoever about exploiting the excellent background that set up camp a block from our hotel. Also, be warned, it's about to turn into the summer of the headscarf around here.

Sewon said...

I love the blouse! P.S. I still live in Shanghai with no beautiful mountains or clean lakes in sight! The secret is that I'm moving down south, near Tibet, Burma, and Laos. There are pristine lakes and beautiful mountains. :)

Raquel said...

I mus admit I don't like circus, don't have many experience with them but the ones I saw in Portugal left me far from impressed. Though I love how colourful these pictures are and how you look one cute gipsy! ;)

Yea I've been checking out tons of shoes this weekend...so far nothing...I'm just being annoying probably because I want the Miu Mius even though I can't (well, shouldn't) buy them. *sigh* I'll find some eventually or I'll just make a pair of shoes I already have work.
Going to check out Kurt Geiger though! :D

Fantastic blouse. I love it! Annd, I love your little clutch. Every now and again I scour Etsy for petit point prettiness, but have yet to find the one purse that screams "buy me!" In time, I suppose ;)
