an American in Germany: a blog about culture, language, society

This is just a typical street café on a corner in Berlin, and one thing I absolutely love in Europe. This street, and so many others, are filled with places like this, and you walk around in the evening and people are out and enjoying themselves...and so many of them walk or bike there, they have their neighborhood place where they are regulars. The chalk board outside the restaurant advertises the specials, and every street sign or lamp post has two bikes locked up to it. The waiter won't bring you your check until you ask for it, no rush, and you can just sit...and drink and talk and enjoy...
