Berlin combines the culture of New York, the traffic system of Tokyo, the nature of Seattle, and the historical treasures of, well, Berlin. (Hiroshi Motomura)

First crush, Berlin. What of a city!

If I have one word to say about it after having visited the city for four intensive days, I would say that Berlin is... crazy. And to be honest, I wasn't expecting Berlin to be such an alive, huge and overwhelming city. It feels that place is a magnet for creativity, especially when it comes to the  paintings on the Berlin Wall. 

That was the first destination of some kind of Euro-trip I did with three girlfriends of mine. I cannot remember everything that we've done, but we saw "a lot" (and walked, oh my, so much).  We walked by the Holocaust memorial, checked the Checkpoint Charlie, admired the Brandenburg gate, get ahead of the Reichstag, had a great spanish meal around Potsdamer Platz, visited the Hamburger Bahnhof museum for contemporary art, and so on... Berlin is definitely a gigantic city, and it's impossible to see everything in a week. For sure, I'll be back there.

I also took some time in the train to draw a little something coming from what inspired me the city. A german looking guy walking by the Berlin Wall. Incomplete, but still, I feel good to have drawn something. Is has been a long time!
