Berlin is a true puzzle with a thousand pieces, but a deeply enjoyable one. So beautiful and ugly at the same time, filled with pieces of everything to explore and experience. Marble pillars, high culture and heavenly architecture rule some parts of its anatomy, where as concrete and decadence rule the rest. The city has ghosts of its past lingering under the streets, but it's still so revived and lovely! There's something wonderfully strange going on in there.
I've mentioned before that every city has a different soul inside (and according to Neil Gaiman, a beast. Berlin had a monstrous bear beneath it, if I remember correctly), and you can never know in advance whether you make friends with it or not. The spirit of Berlin started to grow inside me a little, I could even imagine living there someday.

On that particular day we saw three.
|This store had us bleeding for the fact that we don't have a vinyl record player at home!|
|One night we stumbled into this bunker. My love's old friend took us there and there was a goth club going on, |
a lot of fun was spent that night. I still have no idea how we managed to get home that night, ha!
Getting lost at remote bars is nice, once in a while.
I still have a staggering amount of travel photos left and I don't know how to unwind them yet. There might still be some Berlin photos left with more colour in them. Is anyone up for a second post, with some recommendations and random recollections on the trip?
