We jumped at the chance to travel to Berlin with our friends for a few days, our first trip to Germany. I’ve taken quite a few photos and there is rhyme and reason to them, but it is late here and I have seen so much that is different from home that I don’t think I will be able to organize them in a logical way at the moment. Instead I am going to share a few things that caught my eye. If you lived here, these probably wouldn’t make you raise an eyebrow. Just like some of the things I take for granted where I live might be unusual and interesting to a visitor from somewhere else. Thus, I present a few random snaps before I close my eyes for the evening.
This is Gedächtniskirche or the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church before and after a bombing raid in World War II. The ruins have been made into a memorial hall and the newer, more contemporary building is the blue stained glass building you see in the lower left of the photo.
