Journal Entry:
Spent the morning wandering around a wonderful park full of junk sculptures and graffitti. Never figured out if the park was public or private. The central (or at least largest) piece was a city bus planted in the ground with the front end up in the air. The lot seems to be surrounded by artists studios.

Also went to the Info Box. This is a very strange (and ugly) building documenting the new community that is being constructed in the former no-man's land adjacent to the Brandenburg gate.

Spent the night reading, planning where to go next, and of course having a couple beers (they're so nice here).
