Update #6

Exhibition dates for Berlin Diary...almost set...!

1 comment

Hi everyone.

I talk with the owner of the gallery this morning and she expects that the construction on the facade of her building (where the gallery is) will be finished by the end of the month. So later this week we will talk about exhibition dates for Berlin Diary. Yipee!

Meanwhile, if you want a bit of fun, Otto and I began a photo page three weeks ago in Berlin and photographers from around the world have taken part, including one of National Geographic's photographer stars.  You are all welcome to submit something to the project too, if you wish.  The site is called, ""Where is Otto?" and the link is:

The site is growing and changing every few days. So far it includes photographs from Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. 

If you need a photo of Otto for your submission, I'll attach one with this email.

Wishing you all the best from Spain...
