What can I say, the scene was perfect. The water was still a bit frozen, a couple of clouds in the sky and a beautiful red-orange sunset. This cannon at Lake Tegel is a present of the London District Greenwich. Reinickendorf, the Berlin district in which the lake is located, is twinned with Greenwich. Therefore also the whole promenade is called “Greenwich-Promenade”.
You have certainly all heard of Greenwich. Usually in the context of the zero meridian or the time zones. But only few have actually visited Greenwich – it’s not really on the list of things to do on a weekend trip to London.
