Wherever you go, there are cables. Some are hanging to the ground, some are still in place. But they really are on every single street light. Our host Radu explained us that they remain from the time when there was no real electricity network. Everyone just established their own energy connection and as of now, not much changed.
As you may have heard, Berlin is an eternal construction site. Even better when something is finally declared open as it was with the new metro station Brandenburger Tor. Up to this point, there are only 3 stations of the new metro line U55 opened. As for the design of the new stations I was very positively surprised and am curious of the other stations that should be finished within the next ten years.
The day trip to Sinaia in the Carpathians in Romania was the first trip to the mountains for me in a very long time. Four days in Bucharest is a bit too long to just see the city. And who knows when I will be back in Romania, so it seemed convenient to visit Dracula’s Neighborhood while I’m around.
The Champagne Bar was set up for the Berlin International Film Festival in the Sony Center at the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin. I never made it before to the Berlinale Festival, but this time I just decided to go for a walk after work to see if they had some good ideas to decorate the city. In general I can highly recommend strolling through Berlin in the time of the festival. There are some special attractions which can pep up normal photos.
Gdańsk is such a magnificent town and with all the water around one can surely get the idea to go fishing in Gdańsk. I was very lucky with the weather. The clouds caused a great sunset but no ten minutes later it started pouring. But in other ways as well, it is impossible to capture this scene a second time.
