Quote

Hipsters flock to Berlin. While the entire city is a mecca for Gen Xers, there’s one particular neighborhood that is the reigning kingdom of Hipsterdom: Kreuzberg.

What was once a very disadvantaged and poor area is now alive and hip once more, with street art, gourmet coffee houses and trendy bars, all catering to the young and hip. For many, this is an interesting transformation.

You see, Kreuzberg was once a divided city, with the Berlin Wall splitting it down the middle. Because of this, it was one of the poorest cities in all of Berlin. But ever since the Wall came down, it’s become the epicenter of everything awesome about Berlin.

Does anybody else not know what a "Gen Xer" is, or am I just being a bit dense this evening?

I never have problems with the quote system, but I'm part of Gen X and you are part of the famous Baby-Boomers, ie. very old 😀.

Berlin is the number one city in the world to work while you travel

Digital-heavy roles like freelance writers, editors, social media managers, designers, web developers and graphic designers, can often have the freedom of choosing where they want to work from around the globe. Berlin’s reasonable rent, wealth of culture and geographical location make it an attractive base for people seeking to explore while earning a steady income.

Nothing bad in loving Berlin, but making a Captain Obvious study comparing Berlin with Cairo that is... so Berlin!

 

Bavaria pays you 3 billion euro per year for that bullshit!

Nothing wrong with loving Berlin but who are you? Why the secrecy?

 

There are no secrets.

I´m reading Berlin related news on a daily basis. In German and in English.

For more than 15 years now. When I find something that fits a thread I´m sharing it.

 

BTW, yes, I am a kind of "Berlin mayor" in a way nobody can imagine. But this story, for sure, will be kept as a secret.

 

As the Secret Mayor of Berlin I welcome all monetary contributions of the Province of Bavaria to Berlin. Your investments add to the glory of the capital and in the end to the glory of the Fatherland as a whole.:lol:

 

Without the invention of Augustiner Beer Berlin would be a dreary place.  Thank you for this as well.

This would be a perfect text to use for English students to 'find the grammar mistakes".
