53 weeks

Week 11 – Park Babelsberg

Here we are back in not so exotic territories but home nonetheless.

Many thanks to Tom for this week’s suggestion and of course to the unknown cyclist who rounded off the picture nicely. It was taken from Park Babelsberg overlooking the Havel River to the city of Potsdam.

Thanks also, to those readers who pointed out that I have been living abroad for too long and that my blog should be named “53 Weeks on a bench” rather than “53 weeks on a bank”. Although both are of questionable heritage with regard to the English language and everything else for that matter, (one being a Geordie and the other a Yorkshireman), I will none the less adapt my “Germisch” or “Dinglisch” title to the correct “Bench”.

It would have been kind if someone would have let me know a little earlier, to which my better half will undoubtedly say “I told you so!” and she is German…… nuff said!

  1. You bar steward! Before removing the speck from anyone else’s eye, please consider removing the plank (plench?) from your own! Your only claim to being English is being half Lancastrian, and didn’t the German authorities make renounce that (minor and hardly desirable claim) under torture before they’d let you buy a house or marry here?

    That aside, it’s a lovely picture taken from the river bench… er… er… bank.

    Ooof, you’ve got me at it now.
