It was a rainy day. None the less we walked passed the duck pond through the Stadpark towards our destination: Die Pusteblume Cafe!

This duck pond is close to where I used to live as a child.

    Your pictures make me homesick for travel and Chile again Uta, the streets, the food, the people all creating a world of adventure.

      Emu, I find the distance Sydney/Berlin is a bit too much to travel in one go. Peter, too, would prefer to have a stop-over on the way.
      We worked it out the way we travelled this time back to Sydney, it took us 48 hours from the time we had to leave our apartment at 10 am on Thursday till we arrived back home in Dapto on Saturday morning, By the time we finally went to bed on Saturday, probably 48 hours had gone since we got out of bed on that Thursday in Berlin. The good thing is, that when booking early, the airfares are still the same as some twenty years ago. The prices don’t seem to have increased if you book early and are prepared to travel at somewhat inconvenient times.
      I think leaving at nighttime and arriving in the morning, when the flight-time is some 24 hours and on top of it, the waiting time at airports to change planes can exceed six hours. well, this is altogether rather exhausting!!
