an American in Germany: a blog about culture, language, society

Today I happened to be in a new area of town: Berlin-Wilmersdorf. I was walking around and noticed that the doorways had these really beautiful frames. They had a little plaque that said built 1925/1926 and the name of the tile-manufacturer. Then I happened to walk by a house with a plaque, stating that it was the house of Erich Maria Remarque, who wrote All Quiet on the Western Front, the famous anti-war novel. Such random little discoveries!
