You immediately feel the relaxed and friendly atmosphere when you step into the Downbeat Cafe in Echo Park. Writers sit typing into their computers or stare into space, others study big volumes of literature and groups talk about their next film project, annoying boyfriends or planned vacations. Nobody seems to be in a hurry and there are a lot of regulars who great each other with a few words, a smile and a friendly wave.
“This is becoming a sanctuary where you might as well be connected with the human beings around you.”
"My favorite German words are‚ 'Rücksichtnahme' und 'Glückseligkeit'"
“German is easy to learn and a beautiful language” - WHAT?
Usually I hear exactly the opposite when talking about my mother tongue. But Cristina Cuevas-Wolf loves my language! And she speaks it so perfectly--she makes it sound friendly and even fun!
