    So the world traveller went for a quick trip to Berlin... he was there only for some hours, so it was hectic.. I still manged to get some vacation pictures:

    Of course, we had to walk by the Victory Column, no time to climb to the top, but the view wouldnt have been that great...

    Bikes parked in front of the famous "Zoo" trainstation. Berlin cyclists are some of the most fearless, daredevil, and anarchist bike riders I have met.

    The church in the background is "Gedächtniskirche", one of the symbolic buildings of Berlin, and has been left half destroyed, as it came out of WW II.

    Crater found this tradition which is probably worldwide now, in Ljublijana. It would seem this bridge here has only just been discovered...

    Since Berlin is the capital again, it is a regular occurance for the route from Tegel Airport to the government buildings to be shut down for high ranking state guests to come blasting through the city in a convoy of black limousines. I havent yet figured out which country that red/black flag on the Mercedes S-class represents, in any case this couldnt have been just some ambassador, judging from the easily 30 Motorcycle escorts, a dozen black limousines and some armored G-Class plus another 10 regular police cars. The intersection here had been shut down by a dozen policemen for at least 15 min before the convoy passed through, you can imagine what traffic looked like, at 4 on a friday afternoon...

    Great photos, very much up to standard Thats how it should be done, nice photos and commentary about the place itself, adding a bit of history

    I will have to google a bit more about that church in ruins, had no idea there is such church in the middle of the city, unrepaired since WW2.

    That convoy of policemen and limos sounds very familiar, happens here in Ljubljana all the time too... of course in much smaller scale... one limo and 2 bikes usually

    And what is that about madmen Berlin bike drivers, you had a close encounter with any of them?

    Church : oh yes its superfamous. Theres a "newer" Building next to it, that ugly glass Cube. But the original tower still looks like a bomb just hit it...

    Police escort: it was def a chief of state, thTs illustrated by a Formation of 15. had it been a work visit and not an official one he'd have had 7. lower state officials will get escorts of 5, 3 or 2... Theres a whole website explaining it!

    Bike maniacs: i used to be one of them.
