After crossing Bebelplatz, we walk towards the Deutsches Historisches Museum and turn left before crossing over the Spree River. After a couple of failed attempts to access Museums-insel, we find a way over Monbijoubrücke at the Bode-Museum. Located at the northern tip of the island, the Bode was designed by architect Ernst von Ihne and completed in 1904. Originally called the Kaiser-Friedrich-Museum, it was renamed in honor of its first curator Wilelm von Bode. The Museum holds collections of sculpture as well as Byzantine Art, coins and medals.
My fourth grade teacher — Miss Petti — inspired in me a love of Egyptian art history and culture. One of my top bucket list trips is to visit Egypt and experience and soak in the energy of the Valley of the Kings and sail down the Nile River.
After trying on literally a score of sandals and shoes, I found my ideal ones . . . just not in my size. Disappointed, my quest is to locate them somewhere in the U.S. I’ll keep you posted!!!
Absolutely tired, hot and sweaty, and having learned we have a 7:30 dinner reservation, we retrace our steps back to the Regent Hotel — passing wonderful graffiti along the way!
Having put on many miles today, I was feeling good . . . after a hot shower, fresh clothes, two Moscow Mules! We opted to eat outside on their "summer terrace" (sidewalk) as it had cooled down pleasantly. Dinner was excellent. Being a "Chanterelle Week", I ordered Lobster bisque, followed by Chanterelle risotto and a side of Mediterranean grilled vegetables. Being our last night in Berlin, Zelda, Juli and I lingered over several glasses of Prosecco sharing personal stories and highlights from our time thus far together — beautiful evening!
