Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin
Spotted at Landwehrkanal in Planufer in Kreuzberg 61.
I was in Kreuzberg lately – first visit after many years – I was schocked to see it looks more and more like Prenzlauer Berg, even the waiter in the café didn’t speak german ):. Something is getting quickly lost that will never come back again.
I guess this is the downside of progress and improvement;) Houses get prettier, streets get cleaner, toilets are no longer “halbe-treppe” adventure but all this comes at a price. Even I remember Kreuzberg much different although it was only more less 10 years ago.
The thing that makes me uneasy is rather the fact that people tend to go for that fake, carnival-never-ends and altogether-now shite they are being dished out here – dished out what they themselves seem to desire. It´s not only the place going cheap then. It´s also the people. And that is a reason to worry.
