I’m in Berlin for work this week. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it! I got in yesterday and discovered that my hotel (which was booked by my colleague) is located right in the heart of the old historical center. That meant I could go on an evening walk after dinner and hit many of the key sights in this part of town.
Strange to think that last time I was here, I was 23 and it was freezing cold in February. So much has changed! So much is still the same.
|Soviet prestige tower|
|Tons of construction everywhere|
|There are brightly colored tubes everywhere. The cabbie explained that they’re meant to
pump water out of the construction sites for a new subway line. They look like art.
|This is what happens when I need a snack
but can’t find a Belgian waffle shop.
|Super ornate church|
I visited those places when I was there (not Dunkin Donuts!), but “the Wall was still there and there was NO construction going on.
