The promised network of streets that bring everything experimental together
I have been in Berlin almost a week now, and I see that the amount of things you can experience will probably never end. The city is pumping its’ own artistic air, which I’m sure has drawn all these souls to it.
BERLIN WALL / EAST SIDE GALLERY
One of the most iconic places in Berlin is definitely the Berlin Wall and specifically the East Side Gallery, though surprisingly only one picture seemed to be packed with tourists – the famous kiss. But it is not the only art on those walls, and there are so many ways you can experience the wall. Again mirroring the city itself. Here are few shots around the wall, not including that kiss.
CHANGING MEETING TIMES AND CANCELLING
This seems to be a growing trend all over the world, perhaps thanks to the smartphones that able us to cancel last minute and keep situations open.
Here in Berlin especially, I can see that people make vague plans and promises which they don’t even have an intention to keep. Maybe it is part of the culture of this city, and whoever lives in it, starts behaving this way. Maybe it is the hectic and interesting lifestyle itself that makes people do those changes or maybe, as mentioned earlier, the human beings with the technical media around have changed. Or maybe it is occasional, just today I confused the dates with a friend of mine.
Either way, lesson learned – keep your mind open for changes!
I came up with a thought, that as amazing as art in different forms is, the real art is always the reaction to it. I often see myself watching more the people in the museums or galleries, rather than the actual art. In the gallery openings in Berlin, my interest towards those art viewers have at least doubled. It is interesting to see which kind of a crowd is gathered to see that specific opening. It tells a lot about the exhibition as well. The interaction is always the key.
ONE STREET TO ANOTHER WORLD
This is something typical of any big city, the sub worlds and areas that host various types of neighbourhoods change even from one street to another. As Berlin is such a mix of cultures, it has been mind-opening to walk around, meet new people and experience that famous Berlin air. Street after street.
Second week to go with whole new experiences..
