Berlin is a city with many sides to it.
It is steeped in history,
brimming with ethnic cuisine,
full of underground bars,
alive well past midnight;
It’s the type of place where the party ends the next day.
Berlin is gentrification,
You can find anything here–even Mexican food that tastes like home.
If you’re skeptical, try the habanero salsa at TinTan and you’ll fall in love with your mouth aflame.
The architecture of Berlin is immense–from cardboard boxes
to Neo-Classical churches,
to 2,000+ year-old Babylonian city gates,
to Cold War era collectives,
and Space-Age towers.
Berlin has given me house parties til dawn,
strange art in random places,
and baklava around every corner.
Berlin has chewed me up, spit me out, and given me life. And even though I’m not gone yet, I already miss this incredible city.
