A Day at the Park
Normally you would never catch me at a park on a Sunday for a party, but these Germans sure do love the park. I was invited by a couple we met at a party, and decided to take the chance and go. They were Americans. Normally, the Americans I have met have been a bit flakey, but this couple was super cool, and had traveled the world together. This is what I want my relationship to be someday. I am very bad with names and faces, so we took a risk. As soon as we got there, it all came back to us. We went to Treptower Park. It is in East Berlin, and it is quite beautiful. Again, my boyfriend is about 40 years old and from West Berlin. We don’t make it over to the east very much. He in fact said he had never been to this park. I really don’t get it. I think the coolest stuff I have seen so far has been in the East part of Berlin, and the west seems to be for families. It is boring to me.
Anyways, we BBQ’d and had a good time drinking beers and talking. I managed to take some pictures.
I walked around the park. The Soviets built this monument back when there was a wall, and I took some pictures of statues.
It’s a pretty large monument. Reminded me of the mall on Washington. the rest of the park was almost like wilderness to me. It was not full of people, and we had a large section to ourselves. I had a great time. I love Berlin in Spring.
On the drive home, I managed to get some more pictures of this angle lady who for the life of me I cannot remember who this is.
I really wish that we could spend more time in East Berlin. Just have to find more things to do I guess. This week is “Carnival of Cultures.” This should be fun. A friend is turning 30, and should be over 1 million people on the streets of Berlin. Can’t wait.
