The American School Bus
Everything I love about Berlin can be summed up with a place like this.
We walked past here at the weekend on our way to the Natural History Museum. It's just on the corner of Torstrasse & Friedrichstrasse. Right in the middle of the city on a busy corner, an empty lot fenced off from the busy Thursday afternoon traffic. To me this typifies Berlin. They've filled it with sand, planted some sunflowers, put in some some nice garden furniture, and finished it off with an American school bus selling hotdogs and frozen yoghurt with a million toppings. Add in some good friends, and you have another great Berlin afternoon.
