As soon as I leave the metro behind and step out to the real world of Berlin it instantly puts a smile on my face. The vibes of the city already feel so nice. A cycle & pedestrian friendly city with the perfect amount of population spread so wide makes it feel totally balanced. Maybe cause it really is. As I walk towards my uncle's house I see a toddler falling head down to the ground at a playground. This "ouch that really hurt!" scene makes me expect the typical mum's panic followed by a cry baby soundtrack. To my surprise the tall beautiful mum lifts the kid silent and cold blooded and the latter reacted as it never happened. That's just impossible in the European South, maybe with the exception of France.
Berlin continues to impress history wise this time. How can someone skip the tags in front of the houses where Jews used to stay before they were "Ermordet in Auschwitz":
