Week 63

An amazing year comes to end, we celebrated it with friends, some art and music. We will tune out for the next two weeks, expect to see the next week note in January. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Christmas Party

After an exciting, crazy, exhausting and exhilarating year, it was very important for us to close up this year with gathering our close friends and colleagues for one big thank you. 2011 was special and it couldn’t have happened without those people in our lives.

While it is a common rule in Berlin to have a good party, we decided to go a somewhat different way and exclude ourselves from the competition for the best pre-Christmans party. Instead of repeating the success of our last years endeavor, we chose the culture route this year.

With the help of Julia Benz and Peter Gregson – both friends and wonderful artists – we transformed our office to a small gallery and concert hall. While Julia gave everybody a glimpse into her current work, Peter performed two sets. We felt that our attempt to create a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere worked out and we are very grateful to everybody who could attend.

Here are some photos that Nicola took at our party. If you want to see the whole set, please follow this hyperlink.

Tuning out

The next two weeks we will take it slow, relax and enjoy some time with family and friends. It will be hard for us to stay away from our computers all together, but that’s what we have our Kindles for. You will most likely still see an update from time to time. But we won’t publish any week notes until January.

Enjoy some quiet days and have a pleasant start into the new year – it’s shaping up to be an exciting one.
