My friend loves to explore the city. Much more than I do, or rather: with more expertise. Sometimes, when I’m lucky, he takes me on his discovery & photography expeditions. One of them led us to the construction site of a former sports hotel in Hohenschönhausen – at least, that’s what I think it was.
I love the adventurous thrill of urban exploration. It’s the only illegal activity I’ve ever indulged in. I guess Berlin is slowly, but surely running out of abandoned hotels. At least for the time being… I’m sure the next economic downturn will yield a few prizes for the cityscape. I am too old for that stuff now, but I hope the next generations get to enjoy these urban delights like I did.
