East Berlin - pseudo walk

The city of Berlin was the last point on our journey.home. And he appeared in our route purely by chance. When buying tickets from Paris to Moscow, the booking system offered a composite flight through Berlin with a transfer time of 3 hours. And without any hesitation, we decided to linger there not for 3 hours, but immediately for a day, and fly away the very next day. The price of the ticket at the same time remained.

Naturally, all the impressions of Germany were associated with the city of munichsince he was the only place that weseen in this country. And then there is also the capital of Germany, there must be everything at least as well. And somehow, the fact that Berlin was completely destroyed half a century ago was completely unconscious, and after that it was in the GDR for about 30 years ... No, well, of course, we also knew about the Berlin Wall, and remembered the war, but then the facts in the head did not match.

About the impressions of the Berlin Walland the awareness of their involvement in thisevent, I will not write now. Daria wrote about this, it influenced her much more. She still watches films about war and life in East Berlin in the post-war years, and reads articles and books on these topics. That's how it is, you have to go to get interested.

Walk through Berlin

I will tell you a little about our walk throughBerlin, on its eastern part. It was specifically to East Berlin that we didn’t intend to, just like that, the airport Schönefeld, where we arrived, is located in the east of the capital, and we went halfway to some train station, went on foot to the city center. In fact, even at the airport, I felt that there was a smell of Russian spirit here. Some names were in Russian, for example, in the trash.

It was strange to us that Berlin was not at allreminds the capital of Germany. Well, not so it should be. Some graffiti are worth. Everywhere and everywhere, on the fences and on the walls of buildings, both on the outskirts and in the city center.

Sometimes it seemed that we were in a provincial Russian city - the streets were not very clean, and some of the houses in Berlin were just like in our country. Perhaps they were designed by the same people?

At the same time, it is clear that this is not Russia -bike paths are present, as it should be. And periodically skips old German buildings. Of course, the closer to the center of the city and, the closer to the Berlin Wall, the more architecture changes.

Separately, I want to mention the monument to the Jews inBerlin is a colossal structure in which many people feel dizzy and the floor goes from under their feet. Probably, the author tried to convey even a fraction of what the Jews experienced during the Holocaust.

After our walk through Berlin, in the evening onthe way back, we met a Russian-speaking guy from Latvia Gustav, who now lives in Germany, and who also had to go to the airport. He helped us and translated the announcement of the cancellation of trains and an explanation of how to get in connection with these changes. Here it is not knowing the language, even a little, and we would be late for the last train to Schönefeld Airport.

We had all night ahead of the flight, and wetold each other about Russia and Latvia, and Gustav was genuinely surprised that we still have such things as corruption, traffic jams and so on. After sleeping a few hours on the benches at the airport, we flew home happy. And 5 days after Europe, we waited winter in thailand.
