Paris In The Winter

The songwriters never took into account the fact that Paris is not used to snow and thus as soon as a cm falls the city goes into shock .Streets are not swept , no services for clearing runways exist  on a Sunday. Astonishing. However after an age I did arrive. The weather was wet, chilly but fun and maybe this odd mix gave more 'mood' , to photographs. I met many fascinating people, not all shown in this film. Enjoyed the French cinema, Japanese cinema and a classical concert . Miles were walked hence  at Terminal 2F CDG to relax prior to return trip was a must. Flights were functioning, yes it had been a great break but an even bigger pleasure to return to Berlin .

Is Berlin a Berliner ?

Today I was greeted by bright sunshine streaming through the window. This made springing from bed easy. After all the Funkturm beckoned and what was even more wonderful was the sprinkling of snow over the city. As if some giant had come along shaking powdered sugar over the city making it a real 'Berliner' .

The viewing platform was closed but where there's a will , there's a way and this proved excellent .'The Funkturm Restaurant'.  A visit to Berlin is incomplete without investigating this amazing structure with it's links to early broadcasting and fine cuisine..
