Probably one of the coolest and most unique museums I’ve been to. Check it: http://matadornights.com/ramonesmuseum/
Berlin has way too much good food! I spent a day eating as much as I could. There are some cool pictures here and a rundown of what's good. You'd be surprised at the diversity of food here. Sure, there's big sausage things. But good pizza and thai food too? Hell yes.
I never know how to deal with these surveys/lists. I mean, Vietnam is the #5 happiest place on the planet? Would that be before you eat the chicken that’s been laying in the sun for 4 days, after you’ve seen the dead motorbiker (everywhere) or after you’ve run out of breath in Saigon (which happens a lot, with that pollution thing).
The following does a good job of deconstructing the Happiest list:
I saw some high-brow musicians perform last night at the most LOW BROW place I've ever been to. Kunsthaus Tacheles looks like a crazy squat – walls lined with graffiti, pee smell, a makeshift bar in the hall. Located in the old Jewish Quarter, this big building is five stories of concrete. It's now an art space but formerly housed a department store. It even had a pneumatic tube system for sending inter-building mail.Anyway…members of the Deutsche Symphonie Orchestra Berlin got together to kick around some Stravinsky for about an hour. They performed in a concrete hall with an audience on folding chairs. You can hardly imagine two different things that go so well together. I don't know crap about Stravinsky so I spent most of the time wondering what the building has been like during its lifetime. It was built in 1908.
