I loved how the paint on this lamp post looks like a tree bark. I wonder how old it is. The lamp is actually an old East German lamp. So it must be at least from before 1989.

Mustafa wins!


If you are from Berlin – or went to Berlin and to Mustafas Gemüse Döner then you probably just laughed as much as I did. I think this perfectly sums up Berlin humour to me. And also shows a real riddle and phenomenon. Berlin has around half a trillion Döner kebap stores – and probably 99 percent of them do better döners than Mustafa. And at none of them you have to line up for an hour – but for some reason people seem to think Mustafa is the only Kebap store in the city. I do not get it.
