A New Trip/A New Blog: Berlin

for new blogSomething on the street by the utility company.

When I was in Berlin the posts were serious as all get out, but home, there is a side to Berlin which is funny and witty. And that is part of Berlin that I would also like to remember.

I was not very impressed with the collection, but the idea of taking an old train station and giving it a new life was a great idea. Except for some of the ironwork and glass, and the matching glass, to close the train areas, it is contempory inside. The outside preserves the original facade, which is quite beautiful, and fits well in this neighborhood.
