We set off into the city at about 8 and as the bakers hadn’t opened yet, we had a closer look at the obelisk. While I was trying to show Opa how to take photos with my camera (and getting him to photograph me), a man with a bucket cleaned vomit off the side of the obelisk. Someone had obviously had a little bit too good of a time the previous night.
After lunch, we decided to head down to the Old Post Station aka the “Neue Neue Galerie”. The queue in front of the building was so long we gave up on that idea and returned to the Friederichsplatz.
I actually managed to go to the documenta this year! It was high up on my to-do list, but I kind of thought it wouldn’t happen and that things would get in the way. I took about 1000 photos when I was there and am looking forward to sharing them, but I didn’t do any sketches… there really wasn’t any time.
