I was at Modulor art store just beside Moritzplatz U-Bahn on Prinzenstrasse this morning to pickup some drawing paper, paint and colour sticks. It's a fantastic art store, an artist's heaven with floors of art materials and equipment. I thought I'd just be in there for a few minutes to pick up the stuff I wanted, but it drew me in and I spent an hour there and still had only seen a fraction of the art stuff they have. No doubt I'll find an excuse to go back there in a few weeks.

Later I perused the quirky art and print galleries on Auguststrasse and took some photos of interesting buildings and murals before heading to the English Bookshop at Dussmann on Friedrichstrasse for a browse of the books. I'm looking for very modern (21st century) world history books as part of my research. I'm reading "Prisoners of Geography" but it doesn't have enough depth in each of the areas of the world. "The World in Conflict" looked interesting and also Noam Chomsky's "Who Rules the World". I'm guessing the most recent I'll get is up to about 2015 and then use the Internet for political history in 2016 and 2017 (so much has happened in the last two years).
Back home now and I'm going to do a little painting after dinner with a musical backdrop of Cinematic Themes from Spotify (it's great to have a million records at my fingertips no matter where I travel)
