Germany, Belin, Januari 6, 2017
Today I explored the surroundings of the famous Kurfürstendamm, with all its amazing late 19th and early 20th century buildings, alternated with some modern buildings. Not easy to photograph, so I did it in an indirect way by reflections. As everywhere, there are also those funny little street scenes.

Today I went to another Siedlung in the relative neighbourhood of Wannsee - only 15 minutes by city train. This Siedlung, called Eichkamp was build in the 1920's and 30's. Follow this link for more information - the German text is followed by an English translation.
After my walk through the Siedlung I went to the southern part of the Berlin Fair. It is a pity that the grounds are completely fenced of. So when there is no fair, you can't walk around on the premisses. I also went to the Olympic stadion - this time to the back side with the huge clock tower and the hippodrome. There I was surprised by a violent hailstorm.

Today I went to Steinstücken, just south of Wannsee, on the border of Berlin and Potsdam. When Berlin and Germany were still divided, Steinstücken was a western enclave in East-Germany. Around it was the Wall with its no man's land, which in a way still exists. After being no man's land, it became a barren strip where nature took over and thus a new forrest grew on it without any interference of mankind.
