A Tale of Two Cities

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…

In fact, it was a pretty normal November day in Berlin.  Cold, grey, slightly damp.  Unpleasant.  I was waiting at a bus stop (which sadly was nothing like the one above).  For a long time.  Feeling more and more cold.  And grumpy. And missing my car.  Keeping busy trying to come up with a really clever Facebook status about the annoying buses in Berlin.

On the way home, I stopped in a flower shop and had the most friendly person ever serving me.  Chatty, joking, even liking the BBC!  That’s all it took to make me forget about being cold and grumpy!  Suddenly Berlin seemed like a much brighter place.  And that Facebook status never did get written.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…

Just a normal November day in Berlin.
