From Berlin to Prague
Took a short bday trip to Berlin and Prague, 2 very interesting and very very different cities, still tied together by common WWII and communist past. While Berlin was a very open city, feels new, filled with interesting new architecture (obvious since it was bombed to ground at end of WWII), Prague feels like a old european city, narrow cobblestone gulleys, stuck together colourful victorian houses. Berlin tells the tale of how cruel humans can be to each other, Prague tells the take of what beautiful things humans can create when they are not busy killing each other! Overall it was a very historic tour, part of history that we just read about.
