Whatchamacallit 67: nanoblock Brandenburg Tor

nanoblock Brandenburg Tor

This is another Brandenburg Tor, this time made out of nanoblocks.

With its brushy brethren, it resides in my kitchen – a fun reminder of Berlin’s number one tourist attraction.

I ordered it June 1, 2014 (Thanks Amazon for reminding me) – and my distinct memory of building it is that it took me two tries.

The first attempt was under the influence some drink. About the only thing I got right that first evening is that I opened each package within the box into a tupperwear of its own. Twenty minutes later, after having dug out the tweezers in order to pry apart two blocks that I’d mistakenly joined together, I put the lids on each box and set it aside for the next day.

The second attempt, sober, was more successful, but it was still challenging – tweezers and patience was definitely called for.


During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
