Globetrotter Girls – Kreuzberg, Berlin

Kreuzberg, Berlin - Dani

My summer Euro trip is in full swing now and I still can’t believe how lucky I’ve been with the terrific summer weather. My first stop after Brighton was Berlin, and on this visit, I was much more like a tourist than I usually am, showing a first-time Berlin visitor around.

While we were touring the Kreuzberg neighborhood one day I was reminded why I loved Berlin so much: even though all of the buildings have been beautifully restored to their pre-war grandeur, they are covered in graffiti, down to the doorways.

I wish I had caught more of the impeccable facade of the apartment building in this week’s Polaroid, but I was obviously trying to snap the impressive Roa mural, even though I’ve taken at least half a dozen photos of it over the years (he happens to be one of my favorite street artists). The building perfectly sums up the gritty-meets-pretty vibe I get in many neighborhoods around the city, plus it reminds you of the ‘f*ck obedience’ attitude of the city’s innovative and out-of-the-box thinking inhabitants (see the ‘Love Art, Hate Cops’ graffiti on top of the building).
