A farewell to Berlin

Alas, time to say farewell to Berlin and its Baroque splendours...

but not before fulfilling a long time ambition of visiting the Berliner Zinnfiguren - which surpassed all expectations!

And how better than to spend the last evening attending Lutheran Vespers at the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, with the glory of JS Bach on the organ, and thence to sip a Rex Bier from the Potsdam Brewery.

Bliss, as I am sure your Worships would agree.


  1. I trust you have repatriated some fair spoils from the Berliner Zinnfiguren?
    Best wishes as ever, Brian

  2. A blessed pilgrimage indeed, pray tell what holy relics and sundry lead tat have you brought home? We await your reply with hushed voices and fervent eyes...

  3. Alas, even with the Lutheran Vespers to enhance my already sound Lenten discipline - it could not save me from the toy soldiers of Berliner Zinnfiguren - to such an extent it must a remain a state secret lest the full extent of my profligacy be exposed....
