arriving in Berlin
We had a good day of museums for our first full day in Berlin today, with lunch at a kebab stand. I’m amazed by how differently the Germans arrange their museums, much more thematically rather than historically. In the Greek collection there was a room of statues of men and then a room of statues of women. I find I’m not good at looking at things without a camera, so here is a picture of an object that caught my eye.
Our apartment is very satisfactory. Huge—three bedrooms and a living room and an eat-in kitchen. Right off a square called Gendarmenmarket which has two churches and a concert hall—walking distance to the museum island and the German history museum and several others. There is a supermarket four blocks away and we made our own supper last night and tonight. It seemed to me less stressful than dealing with a restaurant when we are tired.
