Funny, after my last post (which was leisurely thumbed in on the iPhone while I was watching my daughter and her friend at the pool) I got messages from several of you who wanted to see the “other” pictures. One reader (you know who you are ) actually assumed I had meant to post a slide show of those untouristy cell phone photos and pointed out that the rest seemed to be missing.
I know some of you are aching a little as well (and will understand the strange need to take pictures of a “real” door handle or of produce that presumably tastes just as it is supposed to), so here is a little collection. It includes my old elementary school, the last street I lived in, the Spree tunnel we regularly dragged our bikes through, and the river and lake I swam in (and skated on) all through my childhood.
As Marlene Dietrich used to sing, “ich hab noch einen Koffer in Berlin…“
