German Winter Wonderland, part 2

This is one of those rare sunny days that occur about 20 percent of the time (one out of every five days) in February here in Berlin. What a difference compared with the photo I posted yesterday, eh?
This is day 16 of our time in Germany, and my son has repeatedly asked me, "Mommy, is it still day time?" (This at 3:00 in the afternoon), or "Is it almost nighttime?" When told no, he says, "is it late afternoon, at least?" I have explained to him that it's just dark all of the time here, but in the summer the days will be very long -- but I think that's too abstract for him right now.
