Exploring Potsdam

I had a fun time exploring Potsdam today. I wandered along the cobblestone path, through the castle-like city gate and was on the Main Street dotted with shops. Buskers’ music sounded here and there and all around me people were looking inside the quaint shop windows or sitting at cafe’s people-watching. The sun beat down so I ordered a mango ice cream in 100% German which I was very proud of. I also bought a pretzel, a Potsdam fridge magnet, pink European sandals and a blue handbag. I rested a while, sitting on the rim of a water fountain surrounded by a pool with other people. We dipped our feet in the water and gazed at our surroundings. I looked up to the top of the water fountain which was cascading down with some speed, towards the Brandenburg arch, to shady trees with benches underneath and back towards the shops. I made my way back through the shops and bought some traditional German Black Forest Cake/Torte’ and some red Johannesburg berries: delicious- the sweetness of the cake was complemented by the sourness of the berries 🙂 Lovely day in Potsdam.
