A Photo Story: Berlin

This city is very much one that, with every step, reminds you it is desperately trying to make something of a terrible past. New buildings, open borders, and cheap beer that you're allowed to drink in the street, Berlin is the new face of tolerance. 

From old mistakes come new beginnings, from the streets of Berlin.

Berlin combines the culture of New York, the traffic system of Tokyo, the nature of Seattle, and the historical treasures of, well, Berlin.
