Day 4 in Berlin

On our forth day we kept walking around the city (of course ) and went to the Tiergarten and to the Reichstag to just enjoy the view. We got to take some beautiful and fun photos, and later we met with an old friend who we hadn’t seen since high school. Being a local, he took the role of tour guide for the rest of the day, which was amazing because we got to eat some great local comfort food and he showed us some more places we hadn’t visited yet.

We went looking for the famous mural of “The Kiss” that’s on the long part of what’s left of the wall because we had to have a photo with it! And after a great lunch and a long conversation we visited Schloss Charlottenburg, took some more beautiful photos, and finished the night with red wine and another long conversation.

It is very curious how life works: 3 Kolumbianer meeting again in Berlin, Germany after almost 10 years. We had an amazing time.

Day 2 and 3 in Berlin

On our second day in Berlin we decided to go to the German Film and Television Museum and walk around the city before the premiere of Deshora. The next day we had the entire day to keep exploring the city, so we went to the Dalí Museum, walked to Check Point Charlie and went inside the Mauermuseum.

We have to realize that The Berlin Wall was taken down not so long ago, and trying to imagine the conflict all those people had to live through is just mind boggling. This city is so full of culture and history it absorbs you and makes you want to understand more about society. It also makes you appreciate the present and at the same time it makes you want to fight for progress. If Germany was capable of doing so much in so little time, I am sure every nation in the world has the potential to become a great country.

Day 1 in Berlin

We arrived in Berlin in the early evening and it was cold and snowing. We decided to go for a stroll close to where we were staying at and where the Film Fest was being held. After walking for a while we had dinner. Without thinking it twice we looked for a shawarma place and ordered Döners to end the night with a gold seal! Here are some photos of our little adventure in the snow from the H0tel to Potsdamer Platz and the Sony Center, and of a Döner! These places are definitely worth seeing at night. The lighting is pretty cool!
