Berlin, 10:00 a.m.

IMG_5229

This morning, I went to see my doctor. And again, I did not dare to take pictures of the art on display in his consultation room, it’s just amazing, you see, he’s been a collector of Scandinavian art for some twenty years and he’s surrounded by the most stunning pieces of Swedish, Finnish and Danish expressionism and art nouveau, oils mostly, it’s like visiting an art gallery in Stockholm, Copenhagen or Helsinki or anywhere, actually, I’m always flashed, strangely enough, my blood pressure never shows my excitement, but then again, I’ve always suffered from low blood pressure, let’s not suffer from too high expectations, too. Afterwards, I did some walking, a pre-work constitutional so to speak, Charlottenburg is such a nice residential area with beautiful old buildings, and Kurfürstendamm, Berlin’s “Prachtmeile”, is nearby, and while heading for my very much needed first coffee of the day, I passed some splendid stores, too, Hermès, Bottega Veneta and such. Dior’s Berlin flagship store is still under construction, but it looks so nice that I thought I must show it to you – and the rest on the road to coffee.

  1. I cannot remember how many times I have walked or strolled along the Kurfürstendamm but it never loses its magic and was made for flâneurs and people watching as you sip coffee. How beautifully you describe that special feeling of being there. I have only just returned but am already dreaming of my next trip there in the best possible company of course.
