As I was walking around on Unter den Linden, which was once a royal bridle path linking the King's town residence (the Stratdtschloss) in the 1700’s to downtown Berlin I came across some cool buildings and museums to check out. As I was bumming around, I came across this "Summer of Love" art exhibit that looked like it could interesting. So, I paid my 7 euros to check it out and I must admit, I was not overly impressed with this exhibit. However, I also did not really have much of an "expectation" either. I just saw the sign and said, “ah why not." The one cool thing they had was the "Rock and Roll", "Rock-N- Roll" and just plan "Rock" Posters from that era (I will not bore you with the exact definitions of these three types of rock. (I do not feel like hashing out the differences, as I once did on a long road trip to Ohio.) I figured at this art exhibit I would, at the least, see some cool psychedelic posters and I was not disappointed. However, that was sort of the high-water mark for the 1960's retrospective. I mean they had some other things but generally it was a bit sparse and the curators really did not "cover" or give you a real sense of what was going on in that year of 1967. So, I took some photos of the highlights.

After going to this Museum, I then headed to Edinger Beer Hall, one of many beer halls that I went to for a hearty German meal and some good German Beer. I love German food because it’s so hearty and tastes so good. They rely heavily on pork as a main dish. I really enjoyed the Edinger Beer Hall. It was a spacious high ceiling beer hall that also had a nice place to sit out on the main square that overlooked some amazing buildings in the Gendarmarket.
