Photographer's Note

The Reichstag glass dome again.

I caught the window cleaners in action. cleaning this huge dome is a lot of work to do..

I made a calculation of the glass area - actually it is an area of a hemisphere – the diameter is about 40 meters, so it can be calculated easily - there are 2500 square meters of glass!
Actually it is much more because the surface is constructed by glass plates which are overlapped, so it gives maybe 20% more.

Last photo from the Reichstag building (at least for a while).
