A trip to Berlin (2) Going from Heinrichplatz to Görlitzer Bahnhof

Leaving the book shop, I walk over to Heinrichplatz. Heinrichplatz Nothing much changes here. It’s strange, because Berlin is a quick changing place. The organic food store „Kraut & Rüben“ is one of the first organic food stores in Berlin, I think. Since 1978. "Kraut und Rüben" „Macht kaputt, was euch kaputt macht“ (Destroy what destroys you) was one of the slogans of alternative culture in the Kreuzberg of my childhood. Here you can listen to the German band “Ton Steine Scherben”. Kreuzberg was an area with cheap appartments and huge rear house studios at that time. Further on, down the Oranienstraße. „Isolation is torture“- art environments are everywhere, may they be on purpose or accidentely. Isolation is torture A little fur monster as „Guerilla Art“. The art of fur This wall is filled with ever changing art work, poster art, graffiti and stuff. Second World War bombs left many of such huge walls. Wall Art in Kreuzberg At the end of the street there is the station Görlitzer Bahnhof. Görlitzer Bahnhof Everyone loves us. And Mary too. The Gods love us Back into the line 1, but only one stop to Schlesisches Tor. This was the old final stop when Berlin was still devided. I have lived there as a child til I was 3.
