We enjoyed the tour and Robert. Guess we didn’t expect it to be entirely architecturally oriented. Interesting subject but perhaps not as historically oriented for our taste. But very worth our time.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our morning with John. He was clear, engaging and enthusiastic in his explanation of the city’s architecture. But he went way beyond this in his responses to our group’s many questions on the broader history of Berlin. And we all appreciated the recommendations he gave for wider reading. Excellent all round.
Dora was so knowledgeable and very receptive to questions. I really did not know much about Cold War Berlin but was able to glean quite a bit of understanding about what it was like to live through these times on both sides of the wall. It was fascinating to travel between both sides which today look very similar to an outsider like me but to have someone who could point out the subtle differences in architecture that characterized how the soviets went about rebuilding the city vs west
