Berlin, Germany: The City of Europe’s Division

It is no secret that Germany, most especially, Berlin is a place that embodies so much history. This history is an intricate part of Berlin and Berliners have visible reminders of their history everywhere not only to remind them of where they have been, but also as a symbol of hope for the future. Or at least, that was my impression of the city.

The city also struck me as now being a melting pot to people of various nationalities, ethnicities, and background. In a way, I guess the description of Berlin as “the city of Europe’s division, the city of Europe’s freedom” is very apt.
