At night, in Berlin

A picture from last night: looking down into the chamber of the German parliament, the Reichstag.

Somehow I can’t imagine the British parliament even considering using a German architect to transform the House of Commons (the Reichstag was re-designed by British architects Foster + Partners).

The building is truly inspirational – in every sense at the front line of modern history.

Oh, and why was I there? We were meeting to discuss the planning of the 4th international meeting of the European Pond Conservation Network, to be held in May in Berlin.

The EPCN exists to promote the conservation of ponds at a European level. Those of a more campaigning bent might like to look at the Pond Manifesto produced by the EPCN.
