Listening to rooftop jazz now :)

Also if I'm remembering right, Berlin Chamissoplatz has decent jazz soundtrack

Everyone I know in Berlin live in Kreuzberg. It is the *it* place to live. A lot of immigrants, the street filled with drunks and piss smell, compared to other parts of Berlin. The city is very big and sprawly. There were some squat buildings still existing. They were slumming with crusties and have big banners proudly hanging outside. I wish I knew what they said. A German student told me that Berlin is gone and Leipzig is where it's at. But after I came back to NY, I strongly feel Berlin is what NY should be. It was almost too comfortable to be there. It's a great, great city to be in.

Everyone's super friendly and open first of all. People are generally more laid back there. No snobby bicyclers, no 'city folks' with entitlement issues. The transportation system is way more efficient and drama free. Streets are cleaner and wide. Even with the open container law, drinking culture here is much more subdued and respectful. Art is everywhere and it's a young city. You can feel the vibe and positive energy wherever you go. You don't feel that in Williamsburg or Bushwick. In NY, all you get is snobby privilege and pretension.

Prague:
Our Airbnb attic in Prague. Despite 4 floor walkup, it was our sanctuary from the crazy touristy city center. Quiet and peaceful and unbelievably beautiful.

Bookstore

Old buildings are adorned with ornamental sculptures everywhere
Image
Vítrnik, a puffy pastry is Czech specialty. Baked goods are outstanding in Prague
Image
Jewish Cemetery next to an old Synagogue where Kafka is Bah Mitzbahed and where Golem originated. Old Jewish Quarter is one of the most revered tourist attraction in the city and very fancy part of the town.
Image
Charles Bridge in the daytime. It's always a madhouse. So breathtaking though

Dungeon accessed behind the bookcase where they experimented, making vials
Image
Old Town Square

We went to a lot of interesting bars. This one is from Anonymous Bar where they serve crazy elaborate drinks. Drinks were actually very good.
