Feeling safe in Berlin: KREUZBERG IS MY CASTLE!

After the terrorist attack and the release of vicious crimes in the U-Bahn caught on video, people are talking (again) about the safety of Germany and Berlin in particular. Do we need more local video surveillance? More policing? Politics seem to agree. And I only have some loose thoughts about it.

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.
