Seen in Berlin
Some random things I've seen while jogging/biking/walking through the city:
- artists painting the Berlin Wall - The longest remaining stretch of the wall is called the "East Side Gallery" and is painted by various artists. It has been damaged and graffitied and now they are restoring (or maybe just redoing?) some of the works. When we ran by there were bright white places waiting to be painted, and artists in action, behind a wire fence so the new pieces would be protected.
- policemen guarding Jewish sites - Outside the Jewish Museum and "CAFE BETH", a Jewish cafe, there are permanently two policemen stationed.
- people fishing on the Spree - sorry, Dad, I didn't stop to see if/what they were catching
