Ostalgia

Although my recent trip to Berlin was shadowed by a packed business schedule and snow, I still found time to drop by DDR (East Germany) Museum to satisfy my "Ostalgia" (Nostalgy for East German way of things). Photos coming soon.

Copydude has more fun stuff about Ostalgia...

Note: Dinc, of course, bought a simple piece of cement that is labeled as a "Piece of Berlin Wall" for a couple of Euros.

Actually, Dinc, Berlin is still very retro for me. It just has that feel. And it is apparently why so many Russians like it.

You may have heard of Vladimir Kaminer who writes a lot about the Berlin ambience? If not, check out this article from the New York Times, 'Capturing The Lost Soul Of Russia In Berlin'.
