Today I am on a little journey. It is officially the first day of spring, but look at this:
Men are removing snow from the gate roof (glass ceiling) at Berlin central station. Tons of snow, men in mountain climber gear, dangling at ropes and shoveling. Outside there were signs: Danger roof avalanches. Springtime in Germany.
Do you see the small green shovel in the middle? This was right above my head.
And it did not stop snowing. Arriving in Potsdam it started to snow even worse.
At the evening we went dining out and visited the Holländer Viertel (Dutch quater). We ate at the Fliegender Holländer (Flying dutchman) see a virtual walk. A very old and traditional restaurant with a nice feeling. They even had the fire place lit up - best thing to do this evening! I had a very tasty tomato polenta with oven baked vegetables spiced up with some pesto, collegues pork roast stuffed with plums and dumplings or steamed fish with mustard sauce, pork leg jelly and roasted potatoes - very good. After dinner the traffic had almost stopped, the snow kept piling up. We had a good laugh looking into a store decorated all over for summer fun with colorful beach wear.
I ruined a pair of shoes on my way back to the hotel.
