leaf on duck*

PB040138berlin friedrichshain, 2017

*wtf, where is the duck? let me explain: the car beneath the leaf is a citroën 2cv and this particular car is much better known in germany under the moniker ‘ente’, and ‘ente’ – you guessed it – means ‘duck’.

this friendly gumball machine is located right at boxhagener platz in front of a café achteck. what’s a café achteck? excellent question! coincidentally it just got answered today  just one click away on the very recommendable berlin love blog.

old news

DSC06814berlin friedrichshain, 2016

the newspaper in this advertising sign is most probably from bill clinton’s first inauguration day – wednesday, january 20, 1993.  the headline says “die welt hofft auf einen wandel” – “the world is hoping for a change”. so not much different from today. 

unfortunately the online archive of berliner zeitung only starts in 1994…
