Sunday morning I wanted to give Lukas a break, so set off on foot in search of coffee and adventure.
Wasn’t finding a cool coffee shop, when a guy walked up and said “Lloyd!” … in a city of 3½ million people.
Bernd Lützelberger was a carpenter, a fan of our books, and we went to very cool espresso bar and hung out for a while.
Then off on my own, It was a quiet Sunday morning, and the good city vibes were extraordinary.
There is somehow a feeling of freedom in Berlin. Go figure.
Lukas came along with his bike and 4-year-old high-energy daughter Luna and we walked along waterways and in parks; I totaled seven miles that day.
Brought to mind JFK’s “Ich bin ein Berliner” of 1963 in what was then West Berlin.
