BERLIN / APRIL 2011

Fasanenstrasse

Our travel guide says this is "one of the most elegant streets in Berlin".

We went to the Käthe Kollwitz Museum on Fasanenstrasse. Her work was pretty miserable, I have to say. Lots of weeping going on. Mother and child illustrations.

Kollwitz did loads of self-portraits. Only one of them featured a smile and that's the one that appeared on the cover of the museum's brochure.

Kurfürstendamm was the main drag and we had an excellent bratwurst and pilsner in a beerhall there.
