Berlin - Part 1

I went to Berlin a couple of weeks ago:-
The Ballet:-
The point of my trip was to see 2 ballets - Romeo and Juliet and Onegin - Onegin is a favourite of  mine.  They were both lovely performances:  
R&J - L-R Mercutio, Juliet and Romeo
Dinu Tamazlacaru, Elisa Cabrera Carillo, Mikhail Kaniskin

Onegin - Iana Salenko and Marian Walter
as Olga and Lensky

Onegin- Nadja Saidakova and Wieslaw Dudeck as
Tatiana and Onegin
Tatiana and Onegin
The Food:-
No trip to Berlin is complete without indulging in some lovely food!  Here are some of the lovely dishes we had or food we saw:-
A delicious potato soup with sausage.
I can't tell you how delicious this was!

Fondue at our favourite fondue restaurant - Ars Vini
L:Red Onion and Cheese and R:Classic Swiss

The fabulous bread to go with it and a
glass of Riesling.

Pretty garnishes on the plate but the fruit is
a bit of an odd addition!

Some of the cakes at KaDeWe.

And some of the breads.

Yummy ice creams at Karstadt.

Thai curry and a rice dish at Moon Thai - delish!

Frankfurter Kranz cake.
Berry Torte.

In Part 2 I'll be showing you some of the shopping and the sights.
