The Palaces in Potsdam

Saturday, my third day in Germany, Moritz (Kauana’s man) took us to Potsdam, one of the places I liked the most. It’s a place known for its historical legacy as the residence for the Prussian kings. It’s many gardens and palaces attract thousands of turists, specially on summer time. Since we wouldn’t have much time to see the inside of all the palaces, I only visited the New Chambers and the Neues Palais. Which were amazing! Also, not having seen all the palaces is always a good excuse to go back to Germany to see the rest of them!

Sábado, meu terceiro dia na Alemanha, Moritz (o namorado da Kauana) nos levou a Potsdam, um dos lugares que eu mais gostei. É um lugar conhecido pelo legado histórico como residência para os reis prussianos. Seus lindos parques e palácios atraem milhares de turistas, principalmente no verão. Já que nós não teriamos muito tempo para ver o interior de todos os palácios, eu apenas visitei o interior do New Chambers e do Neues Palais. Que são sensacionais! E também, não ter visto todos é sempre uma boa desculpa para voltar para a Alemanha para ver o interior dos outros palácios.

The New Chambers were a guest house. If you pay close atention to the figures in some of the rooms, you’ll know the real purpose of this place. Naughty kinds… haha

It’s cool and all, but I can’t help to think that no wonder shit went down for monarchies. It’s easy to build such opulent palaces when you are exploiting the people, huh? I took pictures of every room, but I’ll spare you from that, it’s way too many pictures

Bom, é tudo bem bonito e legal e tal, mas não posso evitar pensar que não é à toa que deu merda para as monarquias. É muito fácil construir esses palácios opulentos quando você está explorando a população, huh?
