Berlin is a very brutiful city to look at. This pool that I go to was privately funded and gifted to "Das Volk" - The People - of Berlin by James Simon and opened in 1930. The water is just the same color blue as the blue in my painting. The upper two thirds of the building is entirely made of square, clear glass windows with iron frames. If it is a sunny day, the sunlight glistens and sparkles on the surface of the water. If it is snowing and it's still light outside, I can watch the soft flakes floating down while swimming back stroke. All of this beauty, right smack bang in the middle of towering, cement housing blocks, sharing the same tram stop with the gorgeous heritage listed buildings that survived the bombings of the second world war and the neglect of the decades before The Wall came down.
