Berlin Day 1

A city blown to hell and back. Things seem quite nice on the other side.

This is a massive, amazing Holocaust memorial in the middle of Berlin.

This was this stuff called Berliner Weisse, a white beer made (?) in Berlin. The waitress said it was really bitter and they always add this green syrup to it. This is the result. I saw later they also have a pink version...

There are courtyards between buildings in Berlin. We were fifteen feet away from a busy intersection, but all the noise was blocked by the surrounding buildings.

I had read about this, but we stumbled across it the first night. It's called Tachelles, it's an old five floor department store that has been turned into artist's spaces. Amazing.

A massive studio in Tachelles.

The place was coated in graffiti.

I recognized this station from one of the Bourne Identity movies. Pretty exciting.

The architecture in Berlin is amazing.

My advice? Go to Berlin.
