Hallo Berlin

 The weather was glorious & cafe culture thrives
 As do the street markets

 That are so posh in Prenzlauer Berg they have a champagne wagon!

 I would have loved to go inside this shop but the others were marching on ahead, but I will return at Christmas to have a look as we are staying not far away.
 But the best part of this break was the day we went to Potsdam on our rented bikes, well. it would have been had Emin not thrown every single toy out of his pram, leaving me with Leyla again, this was not easy as instead of sandwiching her between us I had to turn and look to see if she was OK all the time. The parks were lovely and both Potsdam and Berlin were a joy to cycle around
The whole holiday for me was marred by Emin's astonishingly selfish behaviour that was reminiscent of our very first holiday with Leyla, when as a small baby I found myself constantly left alone with her whilst he slept.

You may wonder why we are choosing to spend time together in retirement, but as always once you remove the source of all conflict then we get along just fine, so 7 more years and we should be good to go!!
