    I love these photos. Looove. I also love giant chocolate sculptures. And man oh man, I want some currywurst.

  2. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    Hehe, I’m admiring all your art photos, getting into an arty headspace… scroll, scroll…. packet curry worst!

    Chocolate Brandenburg?? Mmmmmmmmmmmmm…history.

    That wish tree is beautiful.

    Haha! I agree on that “I want to love her” note!

    Peanut butter love. That wish tree idea is a lovely thought. Any reason for pomegranates, in particular?

    1. whisperinggums

      Yes, I wondered about that too. Are they particularly symbolic of something? They do feature in middle-eastern food – is that simply the connection?

    hehe I love reading those trees where you can add messages. In Japan we found the oddest ones! Oh and I have found the best solution to the PB energy lethargy dilemma is to have more PB 😉

    Oh I do love Berlin. I still want to live there one day!

    L-Izzle: I’ll put up photos of the other chocolate sculptures on facebook then, just for you 🙂

    Conor: The best kind of history is the kind you can eat, I always say.

    Vaala: I wish I’d got a better photo, but I didn’t want to use flash in the museum. Such a beautiful concept, as well.

    Amber: I’m so glad someone agrees! It still makes me feel emotionally conflicted 😛

    Theresa and Whisperinggums: Oh golly, I remember reading why. Don’t quote me, but I think within Judaism, pomegranates symbolise sanctity, abundance, and fertility, and can therefore be a symbol of hope. (SOmething to do with having 613 seeds.) The museum did mention the theories that the apple in the Garden of Eden was a pomegranate… but I don’t know what that means for “loving her forever”!

    Lorraine: I have photos of some funny handwritten wishes at temples in Japan… one said “May Boo Boo Have Happy Ice Cream You Betcha!”. I also like your solution to my PB issue 😀

    S.FondueLawyer: But then I’d have to call you S.BratwurstLawyer!

    Berlin’s been on my to-visit list for quite a while now. Love the wall paintings!

    Camille: I hope you get there soon! And that you can experience German food a bit more than I did!

    Thanks for the awesome Berlin pics; I had a really good friend from Berlin and judging by her and her stories I felt like Berlin was a very interesting and creative city filled with artists!

    Taste of Beirut: You’re welcome! It’s so lovely to think other people enjoy these photos too 🙂 Berlin did seem to be a really lively, creative city!

    The Brandenburger gate is really great in the evening with all the lights. If you are in Berlin you really have to take a picture, I was there about a year ago and still love the picture.

    Sadly I’m not still in Berlin, but I’m sure it would look lovely at night! Next time, maybe 🙂
