Week 2 Potsdam – “The-Bread-Roll-Run”

I think you may have to get used to a number of these banks being within the boundaries of the city of Potsdam, as well as being taken at the last possible moment during the week.

The more observant of you will have noticed that this was taken on a Sunday, hence it was taken on the first day of the new week. This is correct, unless you live in Germany, where the first day of the week is a Monday. Although I always mutter that this custom is incorrect and probably goes against some international (most probably European Union) law, it certainly worked to my advantage this week.

To those readers used to my rants on this subject and the mixing up of commas and full stops in the German numerical system I have this to say:

“Was interessiert mich mein Geschwätz von gestern.” Konrad Adenauer (First German Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany)

This roughly translates as:

“Who cares what twaddle I have spoken in the past” A rather novel admittance for a politician I think.

That does not go to say that I will in future condone either of the above errors.

The image was taken on my Sunday “Bread-Roll-Run” with the kids, whilst their mother idled, well deserved I might add, in her warm and cosy bed.

We’ve had mild weather with rain over the past few days, which has brought the remnants of the New Year’s celebrations to the surface as well as preserving patches of dirty snow.

A picture fitting for the time of year I think.
