Let me introduce you to the "alternative green lung" of London, a solidarity-based botanical garden that serves as a café. And as icing on the cake, I'll write about my personal challenge to reach London on a budget and on a minimal luggage.
All the cities I recently went to, the places I enjoyed most, were projects that were initiated by neighbors, designed for everyone's participation to make the neighborhood more livable. A project like this is Klunkerkranich in Berlin. Apart from cultural events and urban gardening, the best thing is the view over the city including the TV tower!

Dim sum, grilled seafood, dried seafood, tofu, exotic fruits, pastries, desserts, soft ice, frest coconut milk, bubble tea...

Carrots have been used in sweet cakes since the Middle Ages when sweeteners were a costly good. Down to the present day, this cake should be included in the repertoire of every baker. Moist and juicy - and not only for easter - this cake is a delight! Instead of flour, I used rusk bread. The cake can be prepared lactose- and gluten-free without much effort.
It's one of those moments when your expectations are really low ... and you leave the place surprised and inspired. I was getting a rideshare from someone with a single review of 3/5 stars that didn't even contain a comment, and didn't know what to expect ... until I met my driver! :)
