San Souci, Potsdam, Germany

 Sorry, Weak wifi and some other inconveniences have kept me from daily posts during this trip.

Here are a few from San Souci, the odd palace of the very odd King William the Great.  The exterior is in rough shape, though the interior is in good shape but with limited lighting because of Germany's inflationary high electric rates and limited availability.  San Souci is in Potsdam, just south of Berlin.

William was impressed by Versailles though he never saw it.  He had small pavilions built at each end.

The view through the gardens.  No fountain this season and the statues are protected in winter.

The entrance hall is the only well lit interior area.  The paintings were considered great in their day, but they were not to my taste.

Just to illustrate the limited interior lighting.  Can't blame them and can't blame Germany.

It is Putin's fault.

The lighting in the last pic actually looks quite dramatic, Jack.

Interesting to see your photos from this palace that reflects a different ethic in this historic time.
