Berlin is a very funky town. It looks pretty rough from some angles yet it’s actually very safe. I was surprised to find so many people spoke no English and then I discovered that a lot of the east-siders only speak Russian and German, whereas the west-siders speak English and German. It’s a place full of funky artsy vibes and it’s dressed in communist architecture and filthy graffiti. People still smoke indoors and the booze is cheap. Weird place. I didn’t think it would be as funky as it actually is.
