Berlin has been my home for eight years now. I can’t say that I know it like the back of my hand because that hand keeps changing. And so does Berlin.

Being able to constantly explore and rediscover this special spirited city is something I very much enjoy. I’d like to be your tour guide and show you around the German capital’s many customs and curiosities throughout my new series of posts on this blog, So Berlin, which I’m hereby introducing.

Whether it’s a sign kindly asking people not to step on the lawn, not to have any barbecues or not to label an area, it’s very likely this plea will be ignored, as you can see from the picture above. The text says: “Do not label.” Ignoring this kind of prohibitions is no offense. It’s just part of the Berlin culture. So Berlin…

For other interpretations of Tour Guide have a look at this week’s photo challenge.
