Perfume in the Air

A wonderful jasmine scent is in the air. Since we arrived jasmine bushes have been in full bloom with their intoxicating fragrance. 

In our beautiful neighborhood many houses have mature shrubs like this, but all over Berlin you get a whiff of it. The American Confederate Jasmine has a strong perfume too, but is a climber and a different shrub.




Another evening spent watching football. Two matches kept our attention: Hungary against Portugal:3-3; unexpected with megastar Rinaldo not being able to take it home for his team.Then, I wasn't expecting much after their loss earlier in the week, Ireland almost in the last minute beat Italy, one of the champions.The atmosphere in the Lille Stade in France was ecstatic. The trophy for jeering their team clearly went to Northern Ireland who didn't win but never stopped their chants in total support of this underdog. So we have a 4-islan-quartet through to the qualifying round: England, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Writing about football as if I really cared....Just my patriotic streak making me watch all these matches.
