midsummer trip

On tuesday this week, we were riding around the city to visit Jungfernheide, a forest with lakes in Berlin. I packed sandwiches and a bowl of salad I harvested from our community garden.

We passed the prisons of Ploetzensee, and visited the memorial for the victims of the nazi dictatorship there. It's a strange feeling to be on a memorial site that was a prison during the Nazi regime, which is surrounded by a modern prison today, with some of the buildings in continued use.

A bit down the road, there's a catholic church and monastery. The church is also a memorial church for the Nazi victims, and the nuns of the monastery are taking care of it and also they provide help for survivors of concentration camps on their visits to Berlin. I talked to one of the nuns and she explained to me the meaning of the churches' architecture. Later I spoke to a colleague, who had been working in organisations who remember Nazi victims, and who remembered the monastery from his earlier work.

Then we arrived at Jungfernheide and stopped by the lake.

I brought my knitting, a sock, which goes to BF because the foot section accidentally became way too long for me.

On hot summer days, I love mint tea, watered down, and with ice cubes. In this picture, the ice has already melted.
