First Post Berlin

The first post from Berlin.
I will start with the instructions to the cape. I started with sewing the shoulder seams together and then pressed them open carefully. This whole cape included a meticulous pressing with all my weight on the iron. Something like sport.

Next step will be the collar sewing but for this more next.
Today Berlin images are Hamburger Bahnhof - if you translate it directly it means Hamburg's train station and indeed it was one before - the trains for Hamburg were starting there. Now it is Berlin's contemporary art museum. Berlin doesn't have the so often called modern art museum (MoMas of all art) - really contemporary city museum is this one. It is quite huge and similar to the Centre Pompidou in Paris - they have too much art for the space and there are changing exhibitions non stop. It is one of the first things I do when I go to Berlin to check what they are showing and the best part is that Thursday's afternoon is free entry!







You can indeed see a train station just from the doors of the museum. Is the new central station.
