Beautiful Berlin

Two more days in Berlin before we return home. Berlin just might be my new favorite city. The architecture, art and museums have made this city a culture capital. And, like the city itself, Berliners continue to reinvent themselves, pushing the boundaries of art, fashion and design. With so much to explore and create, the city never sleeps. I will do a proper post(s) in just a few days. Until then enjoy the photos.

A huge thanks to Toma (The Antiques Diva) for playing tour guide yesterday. Now we are off to Potsdam...

Berlin is truly a gorgeous city. Simply looking at your photos of the Berlin Wall made my stomach churn. Having grown up with the construction of the wall (even though I was quite little when it was built), I remember the tension of those times and the fear that existed during the Cold War years. Thanks for reminding me that that particular chapter of history is closed and that freedom of choice and movement has expanded.
