I was introduced to Anna and Stefanie during my first few days in Berlin, Germany in May. We met amidst a larger group of women and got to know each other over a few good beers at a sidewalk cafe in Friedrichshain. They are both big fans of roller derby, Stefanie (aka T T Twista) competes with the local Berlin Rollergirls team and Anna plays in big part in keeping the team organized. Stefanie is a fellow cat lover (YES!) and it was a relief to find someone to swap cat stories with in a city that is frighteningly devoid of cats. (Seriously, I saw 3 in an entire month?!?!).
For their session we wandered around their favorite neighborhood peeking into graffiti covered alleyways, checking out a local Flohmarkt (flea market), sipped some fresh juice, gulped down some more beers, and finished off our food intake with some locally made fruity popsicles. Though Anna and Stefanie are’t super huge on public displays of affection, for the sake of photos, they were willing to show me their lovey-dovey side. I’m so very thankful!
