  • Citizen by El Bocho

    IMGP8202-el-bocho I’ve deliberately used a wide shot here so you can see the art work in relation to the surrounds. Top right you can see two of the major characters used by El Bocho, one of the melancholy looking girls known as “Citizens” and further right, “Little Lucy” The beanie of the girls head says […]

  • Berliner Mauer

    Berliner Mauer Getting towards the end of my time in Berlin I thought it only appropriate to put this up, Berliner Mauer or the Berlin Wall. It made me feel a bit old as historically speaking I was alive at the time the wall was constructed, lived through the years of its use, and remember […]

  • Herman Bar

    Two Swedes and an Australian sit down in a craft beer bar in Berlin run by a Belgian. What could possibly go wrong? #craftbeer http://bit.ly/1iIPXFk Although I didn’t go to a huge number of craft beer places while in Berlin, this is one of the best for its variety of very good beers. Bart really […]

  • Suicide Sue, Prenzlauer

    I don’t know how a coffee shop known as “Suicide Sue’ would go down in Australia, particularly with it’s eye -patched, sword wielding heroine. Suicide Sue is like a brunette version of the Daryl Hannah character from ‘Kill Bill’. The coffee shop however is not really edgy, but a comfortable, well designed space with very […]

  • Monterey Bar

    Monterey Bar, Danzigerstrasse, Prenzlauer. The first Australian I met in Berlin was a Melbourne guy who owns this bar. I went in because of the craft beer signs outside. Basically has beer, whisky and rock and roll late). Like a lot of bars I’ve been to in Berlin this one doesn’t open until 6pm or […]

  • Jewish cemetery, Prenzlauer

    Part of the Jewish cemetery ( Jüdischer Friedhof ) in Schonhauser Allee, Prenzlauer. It’s history is an interesting read, although the only gravesite I specifically went looking for was that of Max Liebermann, the expressionist painter who died in 1935. His wife committed suicide in 1943 rather than be deported and is also buried in […]

  • Drinking in the street

    Coming from a country with strict licensing laws, particularly about where you can and can not drink, I first found the idea of people wandering down the street with a beer rather odd. After a few weeks however I have got more used to it and have had the odd beer while wandering through a […]

  • Stolpersteine or stumbling stones

    In the Stolpersteine in the footpaths outside many buildings in Berlin are such simple but poignant stories. This collection of four is outside a building in Danzigerstrase, Prenzlauer. The information relates to a Jewish family that lived in the adjacent house. Arthur Wolfberg, born 1897 (by inference the father), Herta Wolfberg born 1899 (by inference […]

  • Leibhaftig

    Craft beer in Prenzlauer berg Leibhaftig is a bar that serves Bavarian Tapas, but is also the home of a hausbrauerei, Wanke Brau. At the moment it serves a pilsner and a weissbier, both of which are very good. These are brewed on commission by brewery Schleppzig in the Spreewald, about 60 kms outside Berlin. […]

  • Finches

    This finch was sitting on the back of the chair across from me – they are quite common in this area and there were a couple having a dust bath where some of the cobbles had come adrift outside our front door. http://flic.kr/p/nmQ2kT
