Ich bin ein Berliner

Quick history lesson in case “Ich bin ein Berliner” doesn’t ring a bell. This is a famous quotation from a June 26, 1963 speech by John F. Kennedy in West Berlin. By declaring “I am a citizen of Berlin” Kennedy was expressing solidarity with West Berlin, which was surrounded by communist East Germany. Since the Berlin wall fell in 1989, the city has been reunited (and it feels so good). Anyhow… the city has really transformed in the past 20 years. The mixture of modern and Soviet inspired architecture makes for a very interesting and complex city. We loved it!
