Berlin

Some Germans I met say that ‘Berlin is not a real Germany‘. They describe their capital as artistic, rebellious and contrasting. Perhaps, people in many other countries feel the same way about their capitals. Apparently, there is a contrast between city lifestyles and country lifestyles/between different cities in general.

Personally, I found Berlin very lively and amiable, even though I spent there 2 days only. I recommend to visit this city and see for yourself why some Germans have mixed feelings about their capital.

I would like to share some pictures I took in Berlin in 2010:
