This past weekend I had blast at the Karneval der Kulturen! It’s an annual event celebrated during a whole weekend in May. The main highlight of the event is the parade on Sunday. More than one million visitors come to watch almost 80 diverse groups dance, sing, and perform through the streets of Berlin. There are many booths set up selling different foods, fruits, clothing, and drinks!
I’ve been to quite a few street festivals, but this one felt different. Everyone was out to have a good time and the atmosphere was very laid back and happy. Despite the crazy amount of people, I was not pushed or shoved once.
I had a great time dancing in the streets, learning old German songs, drinking caipirinha, eating good food, and soaking up the sun!
I hope to experience an event like this again.
These are a few photos I took around Berlin over the last few weeks. The first photo was taken at Checkpoint Charlie. The second was taken at a little ‘sign graveyard’ I found in a mall near Alexanderplatz. And the third photo has a story of its own.
I’m very, very, very excited to announce that my mama is coming to visit Germany tomorrow! I’m so thrilled to see her and show her around Berlin! We will also be traveling around Germany for a few days so there won’t be any new posts after this weekend. I’m already preparing my camera for our adventure. I know there will be lots to see and I can’t wait to share it! 😀
