Pilgrim: Anais. Temple: Mauerpark, Berlin

March 7, 2014
New Temples New Pilgrims: Anais

Rio and Berlin could not be more apart, both physically and emotionally. However, Brazilian Pilgrim Anais has found a way to make herself at home in her new world. When we met her, some coffee and tropical fruit on her table seemed to do the trick. Touches of her native land in a foreign land she no longer feels so foreign.

Anais is a lovely combination of a head in the clouds and feet on the ground, we could feel that when we accompanied her through the city. She would look at the sky as if daydreaming but, quickly, she would go back to earth. She could have an absent look at times, but there was not much to escape her eyes, as she walked towards her destination. They say that curiosity killed the cat. Well, we beg to differ.





“The best thing is walking aroundthe city”

We totally agree. A discoverer at heart, she led us to her temple, the Mauerpark, with the confidence of someone who knows a good deal when she sees one. At the flea market, she dawdled through the myriad of stalls and stands piled up with clothes, shoes, furniture… She always finds something to take home with her, she said. So we thought what we might take home with us. And what better thing to ask from a singer than a song? Well, we were not disappointed, nor were the spectators at the open-air karaoke. If home is where the heart is, on that Sunday morning, with Anais our heart felt truly at home.
