Caputh not Kaputt, Lehnin not Lenin

Kaputt in german means something broken, not repairable, or a person who is feeling exhausted. Caputh is a very idyllic place in Germany where Einstein used to have a summer house.
Not far from Caputh one can visit the Abbey of Lehnin, a former Cistercian monastery in the state of Brandenburg. Like all such religious institutions it offers an atmosphere of peace and quiet.
Germany was wrapped in a heatwave of record temperatures as I visited the afore mentioned places, so I wasn't able to enjoy tourism as much as I would have liked.
Another city I saw was Brandenburg on the river Havel. Its beautiful buildings have recently been renovated and the pastel colours of the facades look lovely.
