Last Saturday I took a walk with my friend and colleague Liz to the grave of Heinrich von Kleist. He was a German writer of the early Romantic period. In true Romantic fashion, he made suicide pact with his beloved, and they carried it out near the waters of the Wannsee, where there is now a memorial.

Here is Liz by the water. Shortly after I took this picture, we sat down for a bit. Subsequently, a wild boar ran past us. It looked like a miniature bison, we decided. Scaaary!
