Morning in Berlin

At 8.35 a.m., the sun has just broken through the clouds.  We had rain overnight, pleting against the garret window in my top-floor bedroom.  I’ve not heard that sound since I lived in Lawrence, Kansas.

The clouds are moving rapidly from the west now, and we have promise of a somewhat sunny, but chilly, day here in Berlin.  The plan for the day: collect our Berlin cards and use the hop-on, hop-off bus to become oriented; take the cruise on the River Spree; and go see things.  Our bike tour of Berlin is set for Saturday.

Dinner last evening was schweinebraten.  I cleaned my plate.

Home for the next few days is a market square in the old East Berlin. Here is Hackescher Markt from our 7th-floor balcony, and two shots looking further afield:
