Hi all!
I've finally put my hands on the pictures of my August holiday in Berlin, that a friend very nicely shot for me (as I had forgotten my camera at home!) and I'm showing you the pictures taken in the Deutsches historisches Museum (Museum of German history).
It's a very good museum, with objects from every age of history, from ancient times down the the XX century. You can imagine my emotion as I entered the area devoted to the XVIII century...and I saw a whole series of portraits of Maria Theresia, Franz Stefan and their children! I found myself observing everyone of them with the greatest attention and recognizing the faces of people I knew :angel1:

So, I thought it would be interesting to some of them posted here:
