To Market! in Berlin

30 09 2014

It was a Saturday in Berlin and I was taken to a couple of markets in the very fun Kreuzberg neighborhood.

The first was an open-air flea market, held regularly on weekends.

And moving on, off we went to a more permanent modern covered market, Marheineke Markethalle.

What looked awfully like our “oyaki” being sold demonstration style.  We were told it wasn’t German but then I forget where it was meant to be from.

Berlin Tempelhof Airport

29 09 2014

The Tempelhof Airport was still in operation when I first started going to Berlin annually for an industry convention but it was never my airport and I had never set foot upon it before my friend took me to the now defunct site open to the public.  The vast open space with runways makes for an interesting visit.  The old terminal buildings are now rented out for events and functions.

A baseball field in Germany? A sign of American presence.

Breakfasting on the Lake

27 09 2014

I had meant to post breakfast pix on my last post but somehow they were not uploaded so here we are.  Breakfast on the lake in Wannsee.  Wolfgang, Antje’s boyfriend, said it was the first time he got eggs for breakfast.  My visit did some good. ^^

A Very Good Morning in Wannsee, Berlin

26 09 2014

I was staying in the Wannsee district of Berlin just for one night which was a shame but it was all the more reason to enjoy the one morning on the boat and breakfast being cooked by a friend. 🙂

Dining Out in Berlin @ the 3 Schwestern

25 09 2014

This popular restaurant in the Kreuzberg neighborhood of Berlin is owned and run by a former metal band member with whom my friend Antje is friendly.  He has apparently shown more talent managing a restaurant than being in a band.

3 Schwestern (three sisters) is located inside an old church building which is being used as a center/school for arts called Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien.

There is a small cafeteria called Kleine Schwester (little sister) open during the day to cater to students.
