My friend's palatial home in Berlin is luxury beyond imagination!

A few years ago when I was traveling to Germany, I was a guest at my Indian friend's luxurious home located on the outskirts of Berlin. With two grand living rooms, three dining rooms, a huge spacious kitchen and large bedrooms, I felt more than fortunate to spend my first holiday in Berlin in such awe-inspiring surroundings. I also had at my disposal, my friend's chauffeur driven Mercedes that took me everywhere around town for the 7 days I was there. I felt like a fairy-tale princess amid such luxuries and could only attribute such a vacation springing from some really good past karma from this or another life!  Each room was beautifully decorated with hand-woven Indian silks, Kashmiri carpets, specially imported teakwood furniture and Indian paintings depicting its rich culture and tradition. In the following photos, I take you through a picture tour of this grand house. :)
