happy birthday in berlin

This was buttered steak, with butter on top, and the buttered vegetables.
An Indian restaurant in Kreutzberg -

club scene at noon

The footage is from the underground club scene - i guess.
It wasn't hard to find and I'm just not going to go there at 3am when they open.

different places 1

Just a lunch place on Kollwitzstrasse.
In the video I wish I had filmed the whole half-hour drama that unfolded next to my table.

This is called a kabob, but it's more like a gyro.

no food pictures today

I thought this was a bathtub in a design store. But no! It was a giant soup bowl (8 feet across) in one of the many closed galleries (August is vacation time here in Berlin). This made me happy like no other art I've seen so far on my trip. Artist unknown.
Zen movie today!

West Berlin

Climbed over the wall today - to the west. They didn't even try to stop me, and some applauded. Did I miss something?
Free at last, free at last...
Left some free art in the subway too

no video today

Red Currants are delicious.

Shot video today but didn't have time to edit it. It's really great too. Brandenburg Gate and stuff in the Mitte. Then this giant elephant came charging down the street. People we're screaming "Run for your lives!" (only in german), but my battery had died just as I saw the giant elephant. I'll put the other footage up tomorrow.

Living in the East

The other side of the Wall, John leCarre, growing up with the cold war - can't resist these thoughts, which I think have nothing to do with the real place. The cab driver laughed and said that the wall came down 20,000 years ago.

I also feel like Steppenwolf (Herman Hesse book for you young readers) - am I the old man in a young town?

there are one million cars in Berlin (according to the guidebook). there must also be five million bicycles.
