Parked in Berlin

While I was visiting fellow bloggers today, I came across several wonderfully peaceful shots of benches. Not sure if this is a meme going around or a coincidence, but it made me want to post this photo I took of two locals on a bench in Berlin. It looks like they're enjoying the lovely view on a quiet Sunday but they're actually gazing across to what was at the time East Berlin.

What a peaceful scene, and a lovely way to spend some time chatting with a friend.

I wonder if they were thinking, "I'm glad we're on THIS side."

Looks like a great reading spot!

Your Grace--The Prodigal told me you would honor my new blog with a visit! Thank you! These two don't look all that romantic to me though, sadly, but I hope you're right.
Denise--it was a lovely park, and indeed quite peaceful (at least on our side!).
Denis--I'm with you! That would be my guess; or perhaps they had a relative on the other side? If so, hopefully they've been reunited.
Carol--I like your thinking! Parks are inded good reading spots, especially quiet ones like this one.
