I’ve been reading a great new blog called The Irish Berliner, written by, as you might suspect, an Irishman living in Berlin.
His writing is enthusiastic and refreshing and his latest post is the coolest thing I’ve stumbled across in a long time. Imagine tooling around a real museum of history, pulling open filing cabinets and rummaging though the old Iraqi embassy in the former East Berlin 20 years after they beat back to Baghdad. Oh, and dodging the cops to get inside.
He’s done it all, brought back words, pictures and a how-to-get-there.
