berlin is currently moving on very fast. since the reunion many things change, the two halfs of the city are growing into one, a process which is very exciting because nobody knows where we'll be tomorrow. there is a vivid underground scene, or more precisely, there are a lot of different scenes, clubs, cafes, exhibitions etc. it is fascinating to live here and discover the new places emerging all around.
on one side you have those nice cosy mansion areas, on the other there are old victorian apartment blocks.

people and things in berlin tend to be rough or rude at times. this factor can make a relationship to the city very ambivalent: on the one hand there are a lot of things which are unfinished or abandoned, shabby or ugly. it's not one of those pitoresque nice little cities. but on the other hand this is what i still like about berlin: right under the surface of old shabby houses there might develope something at the very minute: a new art project, music culture... you never know what will come next.
berlin has it's very own urban romance.
and even though people tend to be rude, it's just their own way of honesty and openness. give them a chance, most of the time they don't mean to offend you. :)

my favourite places vary daily due to the change of the city. at the moment there are a few quarters full of poor students trying to establish some cultural scene (friedrichshain for example) those places are full of culture, bars and clubs, cinemas and parks and i feel very comfortable living there.

depends on where exaxtly you live. compared to the rest of germany i'd say average, in some quarters you can live on very little money.

again, depends on where you stay. some areas are not very safe at night, but in general i think it's a comparatively safe city.

we have nice but short summers and mostly cold winters. the rest tends to be rainy and gray (maybe that's why people can be a little crabby ;) )

i really like it here :) i think this city is worth a second glance :)
