We finished the bus tour prematurely because after getting off at Checkpoint Charlie, we started walking along Friedrichstrasse and meandering through shops and boutiques which seemed to make time pass very quickly. We bought a few things.

In the evening we made it to the Berlinische Galerie to see an exhibit on photography in the GDR until they closed at 10 p.m. Around 11 p.m. I dragged G. into Weinstein, a wine bar in my neighbourhood, and we had Prosecco and olives there.

We went to bed around 2:00 a.m. Sooner or later, I usually manage to drag people into my late-night lifestyle when they hang out with me.

Looking up inside the German Dome at Gendarmenmarkt, Berlin. There is a parliamentary museum in this dome now.

Gendarmenmarkt, Berlin

The Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin is probably the most spectacular square in Berlin, full of classicist architecture. And therefore not that interesting to me. I get much more excited about either modern architecture, or decrepit industrial buildings.
