FRANKFURT

 

The best bar in Frankfurt is the "Ostklub", it's the place we wanted to go to that hot summer night after the "Hafenbad", but it was closed and we found the nicely taped bottle of champagne. It is definitely the only place worth going, everyone agrees on that. The address is Hanauer Landstrasse, directly under the railway bridge.

The weirdest thing that ever happened to me in Frankfurt was when I had an eating disorder and my roommates told me they have a self made pill which kills hunger, but they don't know exactly what it is. It turns out to be LSD, but the effects hadn't properly worked on the others. But they worked on me! It was awful. Lots of details belong to it, like me having a job at the express mail delivery from 6-9 in the morning every day, me being only 22 years old, very disturbed, taking the pill during work, then having hallucinations in the philosophy lecture on John Locke at 9 in the morning, my trainers starting to move and so on. It became a very long day. It had funny moments, like when my best friend called me to tell me that she had just an accident with a bus, the enormously long bus scratching its whole length along the front of her car etc, but altogether it was quite annoying. You know I'm not actually into drugs. I think buses are so stupid.
