since i’m (very) far away from my computer in the next week this blog is left to auto-mode temporarily. there will be some pictures of buildings from the venetian lagoon (i.e. especially venice, murano, burano and torcello) popping up automagically if everything works as i hope.

see you in december!

old news

DSC06814berlin friedrichshain, 2016

the newspaper in this advertising sign is most probably from bill clinton’s first inauguration day – wednesday, january 20, 1993.  the headline says “die welt hofft auf einen wandel” – “the world is hoping for a change”. so not much different from today. 

unfortunately the online archive of berliner zeitung only starts in 1994…
