Blasting off from Berlin

Berlin's Fernsehturm - © Christopher Martin-9314

The week flew by here in Europe with a weekend in Gent and then five days in Berlin.  I met up with my cousin and two other very close friends and had a blast the whole time.  It was fast but I am a little surprised how much was stuffed in.  Last night, I spent the evening around Alexanderplatz and went up the Fernsehturm for a true bird’s-eye view of the city.  Berlin’s TV Tower is referred to by some as the toothpick and the TV asparagus I’m told.  I expect there are more nicknames but its status as an icon of Berlin and a dominating presence in her skyline elevates it above reproach in my book.

When I was down on the ground, the Berlin lacht festival was in full swing so the performances, partying and laughter overran the square.  This image shows a bit of the colours and mood of this event – all under the watchful eye of the tower with a lump in its throat.

Anyways, a quick image while I wait for my plane and get home to my kids.  I will share more from the whirlwind soon I hope.
