Polaroid of the week

polaroid of the week germany berlin breakfastMy last few days in Germany were, as usual, pretty hectic – from Munich I went to visit some friends and family in my hometown and in Leipzig, unpacked the summer clothes from my Israel trip and repacked my bag for a slightly colder destination.

My last stop on this rushed visit to Germany was Berlin, where I reunited with Rikka before I left Europe once again (my surprise trip did happen after all – stay tuned to find out where I am!). After our Oktoberfest shenanigans, it was time for her to see our beautiful capital and even though my time was limited, I managed to introduce her some of the best things Berlin has to offer: Street art in Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg, my favorite neighborhood Neukölln with a glorious sunset at Tempelhof Airfield, and a delicious dinner at Mustafa’s, where my favorite food in Berlin, a veggie kebap, sets you back at a whopping 2.80 ($3.57). The best and cheapest dinner in Berlin in my opinion, but you’ll have to put up with standing in line for it for about half an hour. The word about this little food stand is definitely out.

Knowing that I won’t be able to have a German breakfast again for a few months, I took advantage of the fact that we were staying a one-minute walk from one of the best breakfast places in the city, Morgenland, before I made my way to the airport. Another much too short visit to the capital, but another ‘See you soon, Berlin!’.

    1. It sure tasted like a desert 😉 It’s vanilla quark with fruit and a berry puree on the bottom.. divine. Quark is so hard for me to explain but it’s basically like a thicker form of yogurt 🙂 It’s a typical German specialty.

    1. It was just too short 🙁 I had told a couple of people I’d be in town but in the end, I didn’t even manage to meet up with them 🙁 I also didn’t realize you were still in Berlin! How much longer will you be there? Hoping to squeeze in a quick visit just before Christmas.
