Danke Berlin...

I got back from Berlin yesterday afternoon. It's such a cool city! I think I could really imagine myself living there if I speak better German.

To me, Berlin is one of those cities that has so many layers of history - everywhere you go there are reminders, and evidence, of world-changing events both past and recent, so there's always something to reflect on, in which the German government has done extremely well all round the capital from the 'no holds barred' approach to the displays at the Topography of Terror to preservation of the infamous Berlin Wall that divided the city for 28 years, and that gives an extraordinary depth and density to the experience of being there.

Oh, besides the history, I think German men are very sexy, but sadly the whole kinky S&M bondage scene is just not my cup of tea.

Berlin is exquisite. I was there New Year's 2007/2008 when it snowed on New Year's Day and made the city magical. I even got to see Knute, the polar bear, experiencing his first snow. I almost stayed.

You don't have to speak German to live here. English will do. I have friends who are here since 5 years+ and they still don't speak it...
