Caribbean dinner: Trinidad & Tobaco cuisine


Hello there! This evening we had a dinner in a caribbean restaurant, from Trinidad & Tobago (http://trinidad-cuisine.de). A good friend of me, Damian, is come from Port of Spain, the capital of this tiny island. He still lives in Berlin but is moving to Karlsruhe, south of Germany, next week. So, we had a nice dinner together and other friends. For this special moment I choose one of my special pipes, a Dunhill Square Panel, as ODA in Shell from 1960. As aperitif we had a ginger beer with rum.

I ate some hot chicken curry with a lot of pepperoni. But they were so delicious that I tried to smoke them in my ODA, and capstan blue.

As digestif we had some rum, called White Oak. Smooth that didn’t overpower my tounge.

Now, sitting at home, I smoke another speciality, a Kriswill Bernadotte with capstan blue and a dark beer (Berliner Bock).

Jesus was born 2015 years ago

Hello there!
This afternoon went to the post office to get my box. The post office is in Berlin-Mitte, near Alexanderplatz, quite under the Berlin TV Tower (german: Fernsehturm, berlinish: Telespargel, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fernsehturm_Berlin).

This is what was inside:tmp_13841-IMG_20150827_160540-1329752054

piece of shit

Good morning friends.

Yesterday, an old sport palast was burning down (http://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/inland/berlin-feuer-in-sporthalle-neben-fluechtlingsunterkunft-13770586.html). It was supposed to be refunished and to give hope to some refugees from Syria. Obviously a terror attack from some members of the ‘arian power’.

We will see.

Starting this morning with another easy pipe, a Dunhill group 4 as Pot and Chestnut finish, from 2001. As usual, with McClelland classic virginia. Now.

A wise man

Enjoing a Hirschl & Bendheim corn cob ‘already toasted’ which I get it as gift from an American friend called Edward Blackstock. He is a remarkable connoisseur of corn cob pipes. A wise man. Smokes delicious with the McClelland 2015. Now. Peace and love from Berlin, p

I like the english manufactury, especially for smoking pipes

Let’s start together this endeavour. I’m very happy to discovery, with 2015-01-10 11.43.02you, my limits.

This is my first Ferndown pipe made by John Leslie Wood, England. It has a silver application, also made by him. He was the Silversmith for Dunhill for several year.

Splendid job indeed.

I bought it in 2012, 1st may, for a special day, the working class day. Here, with some oriental blend made with Izmir and stoved Virginia, which I think, the best blend that fits to this smoking mashine.

One of my most precious pipe…

One of my most precious pipe and at the same time, one of my nicest smokers at the Walrus Club Berlin. Smokes at it’s best with english mixtures containing latakia,  like
squadron leader or perfection, both from the house Samuel Gawith. Btw, from 1960. Could be the Sofia Loren under my pipe collection.

Amazing birdeyes on the side. An incredible pipe. Peace and love from Berlin, p
