Berlin Dome .. 21 June 2012

This picture of the Berlin Dome was actually taken 19 June 2012 when we had fantastic weather ;-)
Good evening to you fine people,

today was a cold, wet day, but we ventured out anyway ;-)   Thus we took you fine people  inside the Berlin Dome. Once again, for more info, google it :-)  It is massive on the outside, but even more massive on the inside.  This time, you will be spoiled with a video again, just 'cause i love you all that much ;-)   perhaps even two videos.  It was awesome.  The video inside the "Gruft" (crypt) is a bit dark, but they are funny down there about the use of light ;-)

Enjoy ; -)   I shall see you all for our next outing ;-)   Hugs, Kisses and all that fun stuff to you fine people ;-)

And now off to the crypt ;-)
(I wanted to show you all a video now, but I can't get it to work right, thus, you shall just look at still-pictures)
Here are the leaders, sons, daughters and wives of the Hohenzollerns

 (Queen) Sophie-Charlotte, wife of Frederick I of Prussia (you all remember our trip to Schloss Charlottenburg, yes?  Named after her ;-) )

King of Prussia, Frederick I

 And now off to the Berlin Dome Museum on our way to the "Kuppel"

and now... lots and lots of tiny stairs to the top of the church for a stunning view of Berlin
(here, too, I wanted to include a video, but grrrrrrrrrr...)

And we are on our way down and out ;-)

And now off to Humboldt University (and that was our entire day)

This Sunday.. i will take you all with us to a tour of the Reichstag (Bundestag)...  dress warm 'cause it is cold here !!!! ;-)  Hugs, kisses and all that fun stuff from me to you fine people

Day II at the Museums Island

Hello and Guten Tag to you fine people,

  today was a lot more pleasant... lots of friendly Germans on the street and in the museum (except for one guard who advised me to stand back about 3 meters from the museum artifacts..tztztz).  Weather was wonderful and we decided to step into the Bodemuseum which ended up taking all day looooong.   As before, you may google Bodemuseum yourself for info, but I have to say, the story to that museum, excluding its fantastic exhibits, is already worth a google-read.   Yes, trust me !!!! ;-)

 And now, let me take you inside:  The Foyer

And now to the various rooms:

And after a long day walking, we went to a cute little German Restaurant:

Tomorrow, we are off to the Berlin Dome !!!!   I might even post a video  ;-)  until then.. .hugs, kisses and all that fun stuff from me to you fine people ;-)
