I love the cozy cafes, the great coffees, the restaurants - people are very easy going and relaxed in this city. We stayed in Prenzlauerberg, an area I really recommend. If you ever go to Berlin a visit to the outdoor wall museum is a must. It's powerful and interesting. We also went to the DDR museum, a fun and interaktive museum.
I especally loved the DDR livingroom at the museum, showing Derrick and propaganda. The room actually looks mysteriously like my grandmother's. I find the east-west history very interesting, and I will definately go back to see more of Berlin. We may have to bribe my sister to come back next year.
We have an Indian Summer in the Arctic, it feels wonderful. The colours are yellow and orange, as I'm sure it's where you live too now:)
Have a good weekend!
