Hi friends and readers:
Here’s another photo I thought you would enjoy. I took this from my balcony a couple of days ago, just as the sun set.
It’s hard to describe how beautiful this place is. I’ve never seen a large city with so many trees, so much greenspace, and such peaceful, leafy neighborhoods.
The architecture here appeals. Most of the city was built between 1870 – 1940. A typical Berlin apartment building is four stories tall. All are built of brick and covered with decorative facades: neo-classical and neo-Renaissance are the most common. Roofs are red clay tile.
It’s a beautiful evening here in Berlin: sunny, with a temperature around 75 F. I think I’ll take a walk later on and enjoy the balmy air.
