Berlin Alternative Tour
Berlin May 13-, 2015
Reykjavik, Iceland, May 10-12, 2015
After stopping to visit my relatives in Philadelphia, I flew into Reykjavik, Iceland for a 22 hour visit. With so little time I had to visit only the city and the Blue Lagoon and miss the volcanic places except for what I could see from the plane and bus. I took the morning to walk around the harbor and city, the afternoon going to the Blue Lagoon.
There is a great Alternative Tour in Berlin that seems to be run by artists. I took one of these tours and we were shown a little bit of the graffiti art and how it was made and why we should enjoy it. If you right click on these photos you will learn a little more about each one and see a better picture.
We also enjoyed a 20 mile bicycle ride the other day which nearly did us in. One of our stops along the way was at the Japanese Bonsai Garden. We had tea and snacks there.
Ed and I are staying at a beautiful little guesthouse in Potsdam outside of Berlin. My first day here I ran off to a Creative Work and Relax Pomodoro Meetup Group in Potsdam. I never found the group although I did find the coffee house. The Pomodoro Method is one in which you work hard for 45 minutes and then relax for 15 minutes and then keep doing that for your day of work. So I sat down at the coffee house and started my first piece of art here. While it won't set the art world on fire, it is a pleasant little landscape which I finished up here at the guesthouse yesterday.
