FROM ‘MARA, MARIETTA’
Intermezzo 1: Lilo

Marietta, I’m sitting in a chalkboard café on Ostertorsteinweg, drinking a cloudy beer called Haake-Beck Kräusen. I like this city on the Weser River; I like the look and feel of the town. Laid-back shabby chic urban pastoral.

Three nights ago we saw Garbage at a club on Neustadtswal.

Lilo’s in love with Karen Blixen. She told me so, last Saturday over wine and cheese at the Café Engel.
