“Bits and Bobs” from Berlin.

OK, so I’m not in Berlin anymore, (now in Hannover) but because I’m spasmodic with my posts, I felt I hadn’t done Berlin justice! So I will ramble on now about a variety of Bits and Bobs!
Firstly:
Berlin Hauptbahnhof ! (Central Station) Wow……what a huge and amazing place! Trains arrive from all directions, underground, on the ground and elevated! Shops, cafés, information booths, circular elevators ( a bit like Charlie’s glass elevator), stairs, escalators, signs, weather charts, ticket machines are all evident in great quantities on about 3 different levels with trains coming and going from 4 or more different levels too! Incredible! And then there were the decorations….including 1 enormous Christmas tree that took a few men a long time to erect! Here’s a few photos to show you what I mean, but of course photos never exude the hustle and bustle of it all.

Sculptures.
Dotted all around Berlin were some wonderful (often poignant ) sculptures, often referring to aspects of WW2. Here’s a few that took my eye. (Plus a couple of statues too)

The last sculpture is from chocolate, how is impressive is that?
I’m sure there’s more, but I’ve run out of brain for tonight, so…….that’s all folks!
