CASUAL BERLIN GRUNGE

EURO TRIP PHOTO DIARY 2
H&M overalls (similar here), Brandy Melville halter top , Ray Ban aviators, Target sandals, Giovanni Navarre leather cap
I spent my first day in Berlin exploring the streets of Mitte and couldn't help but be intrigued by the eclectic mix of street art and graffiti. I entered Germany with little expectations, but have I had made some expectations it would have by far exceeded them. I fell in love with the culture not only because of the grunge street style, but because of the diversity, club scene, historical content, amazing public transportation system and casual hip vibe. Not to mention, we also got to stay in one of the trendiest urban modern hostels of Germany, The Generator (next upcoming post). While traveling with 3 Asian American girls in Europe can spark a lot of stares, we felt comfortable here, almost as if we were home. Although the German vocabulary is also a gazillion syllables long often resulting in tongue twisting sentences, Berlin is definitely a city worth traveling to if you're into art, beer, history and the club scene.

Spent 1 night partying until sunrise at Watergate, a 2-club room overlooking the River Spree in Kreuzberg. 
I'm a sucker for design and signage and found these handmade signs creatively adorable

We waited over an hour for this doner kebap from Mustafa's but the wait was totally worth it.
The best 3,20 euros ever spent and one of the best things I ate in Europe. 
The beautiful neoclassical triumphal arch of the Brandenburg Gate of Germany, the former city gate. 
The historical Reichstag building. Completed in 1894 after the German national unity & establishment.
Holocaust Memorial to the Jewish victims. Built in 2004, 2,711 concrete slabs arranged in various heights on a
sloping field to mimic confusion within an uneasy ordered system.
