people kept telling me, "you'll love berlin," and i was like, sure, sure. but i did: there is SO much history in that place. i went on a tour of berlin (new berlin tours; fantastic) where my tour guide was from my brooklyn neighborhood and i met chris, a rad english guy who chatted with me during the tour. i went dancing with michel and "the hollands" (as he called our dutch friends), some ozzies, so many people, went to clubs, museums, i LOVED berlin! i went to saschenhausen which made me think a lot--it was the first concentration camp, so sad. berlin's grim history is fascinating, but also quite depressing.
