Traveling through time, space and cultures at the Jewish Museum Berlin

As everyone already knows: I am not a big fan of museums. I like to immerse myself in history, but not necessarily by seeing old items in glass vitrines. That being said, the Jewish Museum is much more than just a display of historical artifacts: it's a highly sensual experience of history in context of art.

Naturkundemuseum Berlin: A Field Trip

I wanted to see the T-Rex on a Saturday afternoon, and, to quote GOB, "I made a big mistake". Except it was kinda cool and I was able to push over at least 3 annoying brats without being noticed.

Fleischfabrik in Lichtenberg

The old Fleischfabrik in Lichtenberg, as we figured out later, is decaying slowly. Many street artists have perpetuated the places with their names and artworks, and a Sunday afternoon stroll yielded pictures and thoughts on the matter.
