I went to Berlin recently to meet a friend for five days. Berlin is one of my favorite, favorite cities. Which is saying a lot…
I go back often, and somehow a visit isn’t quite complete unless I go to the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche. It’s a bombed church that has been left as a memorial to the war – any war –
Right next to it is a newer church. From the outside the chapel is unremarkable. Almost ugly, even. But when you enter it, the deep blue squares of light with their underlying pigments of color are glorious.
The colors seem to move and change as you watch: ruby red, emerald green and yellow. 
Europe is in the middle of a heat wave. Today is going to be the scorcher of the year – so far! I’m doing whatever I can to keep out of the heat. Looking at this photo of blues helps.
Remember, wherever you are: be cool.

beautiful photos. I loved Berlin for the record.
The city really does have everything a visitor could want! Everything!
I agree. I ate a lot of schnitzels
Can’t go wrong with a schnitzel (Goes well with beer AND wine, too!)
German beer. Big tankards. Yummo
The ABC of any emergency situation is Always. Be. Cool.
As cool as an Aussie cooking on his barbie…
The cathedrals all through Europe are stunning and beautiful. Even the ones that are neighborhood parishes and not well known have incredible artistry and history associated with them.
Yes, whether one is religious or not, they often contain so much beauty and peace
