About

In the interest of science and procrastination, I've been prodding around Berlin's more obscure corners and, with this site, I hope to slowly peel back the layers of the city's history, as well as bringing a flavour of modern life in Germany's capital. You'll find a fair bit about the more well known landmarks here, but you can also count on me to serve up a good helping of reports from where the guidebooks are afraid to tread...
