Play of the DayPosted: May 26, 2012 Filed under: Plays of the days, Wandering in the city Leave a comment
In Berlin tonight, on our way to dinner, we made a left onto Leibnizstrausse, passed Walter Benjaminstrausse and made a right onto Kantstrausse.
Even better (though I did not wander here): Karl-Marx-Strausse intersects somewhere in this city with Hegelstrausse.
I recognize this spatial joke is selling itself to a very tiny niche market. It just happens I’m in that particular niche. Hopefully one among you, oh readers of mine, is too.*
*Mexico City has its own version of literary and philosophical street-naming phenomena. I’ve mentioned it before. I probably will do so again.
