I want to be a Berlinette.
So this is very delayed, but it’s been a long week. Last weekend three friends and I went to Berlin for two days. Just like this post won’t do the city justice, neither did spending only two days in one of Europe’s coolest cities. I would love to get back as soon as possible. Berlin is on the verge of something very important whether it be its music scene, art, and/or architecture. In some ways it reminded me of Beijing with lots of construction and new shiny glass buildings popping up all over the place.
I would like to write much more later, but for now I’ll put two pictures up. One is from when we arrived very early on Saturday and watched the sun rise over the Brandenburg Gate all by ourselves. The other is from right before we caught our midnight bus back to Prague on Sunday. We wandered up to the top of the Reichstag dome which was deserted. Nothing like having major European monuments all to yourself. I guess this is the bonus of traveling in the off season.
