Even the leader has to relax sometimes…

German chancellor Angela Merkel has a beer in Berlin

Angela Merkel is more or less the leader of Europe. Her line has been to keep a close eye or the money bag. Some of this may be explained by her youth in the not so wealthy conditions in the former East Germany. I recently visited Templin, her childhood home town, where the house of her school years still stands. I walked the path she used to take to school and admired the medieaval town walls. See images of  Templin here.
