I used to go to Berlin often, before the Wall came down. I had a few friends in the Eastern Sector and would visit them often, even though I'd stay in West Berlin. Those crossing points were murder. By good luck, I happened to be in Berlin when the wall came down. The most memorable time of my life.
Now, all the people I knew in the East are no longer there, and I've had no reason to go back to Berlin since.
I am planning a trip this Autumn or Winter and am considering Berlin. I am wondering, has Berlin changed much?
Can I still find a Currywurst & Frites in one of those little Imbuss stands?
Are the Donner Kabob places all over the place?
Do they still sell warm Gluhwein on street corners in Winter?
I know Berlin must have changed greatly since Unification. I guess my question is, will I be happy or unhappy with the changes?
I guess the days of going to that little bar on the Oranienstrasse and buying drinks for the whole bar for just a couple of bucks are long gone...
