Berlin Beckoned

She looked at me and the merchandise that I had picked.  She pursed her lips and gave me a smile. “Looks like you’ve had a good time here” he said. In thickly accented English that it sounded German! 
This was the airport and I was emptying a clutch of coins that I would have no use for when the plane landed somewhere else.  Aimlessly choosing a few refrigerator magnets with those “I love this city” message.
Just as she was going to bill, I saw two more magnets clinging on to the one that I had bought. I explained that I had picked only one of those magnets and the others just inadvertently stuck on. 
“Oh you don’t want this?” She asked, almost with a tinge of disappointment, holding up a magnet which proclaimed “Good Girls Go To Heaven. Bad Girls Go To Berlin”. 
I jumped! 
It is a beautiful city. So much history and splendour. In a simple straight forward way, history cohabits with the present, and looks into the future with a steady gaze. 
Having very minimal time, if at all, to look around, I snatched whatever free minute to have a conversation, take a look or even just walk around in the wee hours of the morning.  I have a ton of memories but more backed by a few hundred pictures, a few posts will get to this blog soon.
I look forward to several things. To sharing. To hearing your views. And ofcourse, to use this as my trojan horse to get back to active Blogging! Lets see how far this goes. 🙂
