Today, we shopped
Today was hit up the stores and galleries. Unfortunately the majority of galleries are closed. Honestly, if I owned a gallery, now would be the time that I went on vacation. Alas. I have already committed to myself to get back to Berlin much sooner than later so I am ok with missing things because I will be back. I might try and get myself back here this summer. I really like this city.
We began the morning at KaDeWe which is the largest department store in Europe ( supposedly ). It is quite large. An entire block. The sixth floor is the gourmet department. It is impressive. We had coffee and pastries at one of the counters and then made our way through
the floor. The sausage section makes me think of Germany. When I was a kid, my father used to buy us landjager sausage. They had a small bag of 6 attached sausages for 3 euros. I love that they sell it like salami here. I bought a box and had some with Josh later. He is the only one of our kids that likes the exact same things as me.
We went all over Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg. It was fun to see the stores, get a vibe for the neighborhoods. I do wish it was a tad warmer but that is why I want to return this summer.
Warmer weather, bicycle rides and gallery hopping.
