Gesundbrunnen bridge

Crossing a fairly large bridge over some railway lines in Gesundbrunnen, I was amused to find that the cars you see in the photo are actually parked on the bridge, not waiting for traffic lights to change as I originally thought.

U2 from Eberswalderstrasse


U2 from Eberswalderstrasse

The U2 from Eberswalderstrasse disappears underground not long after leaving the station on its way to Alexanderplatz, Potsdamerplatz and other stations. Its a train we have used a lot already as it heads through the centre of the city and beyond.

Street art, Yard 5, Friedrichshain. I caught this only briefly between the M13 and M10 trams and the rain about to set in and my camera battery dying. The project looks interesting enough for me to make a trip just to look through the yard, painted over the Easter long weekend.

Tourists

Tourists
Living slightly outside Mitte we haven’t had much to do with tourists so far, basically everyone we meet in the street are locals from the neighborhood. Yesterday however we went to Potsdamer platz and it is definitely a tourist hub in Berlin. I actually had thought we were going shopping so didn’t bring my Pentax so only had my phone on me. Thanks however to Google autoawesome I ended up with an animation of half a dozen shots of the Brandenburg Tor, plus an autoawesome eraser where most of the tourists were removed from the shot.
