Interesting and quite unexpected things happen away from home.

Like this Wednesday when I stumbled into Mr. John KerryUnited States Secretary of State, on his way from his lunch restaurant to the chocolate shop at the next corner. In Berlin Mitte.

I followed the heavily protected group to exercise my paparazzi gene.

Then right in front of me he turns towards a girl who wanted a selfie taken. With a firm grip of her arm The Secretary of State makes sure she gets it right.

Shortly after he went into the chocolate shop. My chocolate shop.

I did not want to mingle. After all he might be in a hurry.
