Tuesday morning came around much too quickly, but with 7-8 hours of sleep I feel that I have adjusted to the time zone differences. I had a nice breakfast of meat, cheese and croissants with orange juice at the hotel, figuring that Ken Bunger would show up. When he didn't, I decided to hightail it down to the Berliner Zinnfiguren store, just a block down the street from my hotel, and get a head start on Ken in the search for literary treasures.
After about a thirty minute head start, I called Ken and told him to meet me down at the bookstore. I turned around and there was Richard Rubottom from our tour too. I found three or four books full of pictures of the Saxon army of the SYW and a color booklet on Augustus the Strong. That should provide a clue about one of my next projects.
Ken showed up within minutes of my calling him and he made a beeline straight for the 18th Century section and he soon had acquired a stack of books. He found a set of maps for the Prussian General Staff collection of books and gave it to me, thank you very much. One nice thing about Berliner Zinnfiguren , they will ship your books home to you so that one doesn't have to lug them around every one of Frederick's battlefields .
Richard, Ken and I then took a break from books to get some lunch. We then all split off our separate ways, I'm headed to Charlottenburg Palace this afternoon.
