I’m Dreaming of a White Easter
Well, we had the gall to invoke the gods of spring in our last post and they rewarded us by dumping six inches of fresh snow on Berlin. The city just might be in for a white Easter. Rather than hide from it, I donned my snow boots, grabbed my camera, and headed out to Potsdam’s Sanssouci to wander around the palace gardens for the day.
The ponds and streams were frozen over and the side trails were covered in deep powder. The deserted back trails and snow-frosted hedges felt eerily reminiscent of the final scene in The Shining. A bit creepy, but very scenic. We’ve been to Sanssouci a dozen times, but this was definitely a different take on one of greater Berlin’s best attractions.
