Walking through the streets of Kreuzberg in south east Berlin.  I loved this area for its lack of German-ness.  Or in other words, its lack of ‘ordnung’, the German word for order, which is so intrinsic to the culture it is taken for granted.
The Turkish community vibe there felt similar to Newtown in Sydney, social, relaxed and a little grungy but wholly inviting. Malini and I actually spent a whole precious afternoon wandering the streets here on the way to the Jewish Museum.
