When we were in Berlin we stayed in what used to be Eastern Germany. Supposedly the hotels in that part of town are actually ‘nicer’ which I found to be somewhat counter-intuitive because of what I expected Eastern Berlin to look like. It’s probably because the hotels (I think we stayed at like a Marriott so it wasn’t over the top by any means) were more recently built and thus are more equipped with modern amenities than those in Western Germany.

We were walking to one of the museums in East Berlin when we passed this very industrial looking gorilla. I think it may have been in front of a nightclub or bar but even if it was ‘kitschy’ it was still very cool looking. I loved the saw blade that made up one of his pectorals.
