keepin’ up appearances

more tourism yesterday. Potsdamer Platz (see it in panorama, scroll down a bit). It’s completely dominated by the Sony Center, Quartier Daimler-Chrysler, DB, and Sanofi Aventis. Not to mention two IMAX theatres, a mongo arcade, and bizillions of cafes.
I walked from there past some sections of The Wall, to the Field of Stelae

at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. I chose not to go in, but spent awhile in the Field. From there, I walked

to the Brandenburg Tor. It rained, lightly, which fit my mood.


Got a snapshot of the charioteer against the grey clouds
and a shot of the horses as the clouds broke up.
Finally, the Reichstag, not to be confused with the Bundestag
Meanwhile, here’s some shots of Alexanderplatz, currently under massive development. Parts are visible from Potsdamer Platz, and besides – the cityscope project (preceding link) is cool.
