One Year in Berlin: Warum Berlin? (in German)

Die Welt wird jeden Tag kleiner. Ich bin in Long Island aufgewachsen aber ich habe mich nie gefühlt, dass ich isoliert bin. Natürlich habe ich eine besondere Beziehung mit meinem Heim in New York, aber ich möchte glauben, dass ich ein Teil von einer großen Gemeinschaft bin. Ich wäre beides kurzsichtig und arrogant, wenn ich dächte, dass mein Leben keine Verbindung mit fremden Menschen zu tun hat. Wir leben in einer Zeit der Globalisierung und deshalb müssen wir lernen, mit verschiedenen Leuten zu interagieren. Mit dem Internet wissen wir sofort, was tausende von Meilen weg passiert ist. Mit neuer Technologie können wir ohne Schwierigkeit mit Freunden in fernen Ländern sprechen. Ich frage daher, warum sollte meine Bildung in New York bleiben?

I can’t stand reading fiction about World War II.

Can you?  Over on Book Punks, I talk about why living in Germany has turned me away from fiction about the war

“When the hype for Elizabeth Wein’s Code Name Verity was going around, I found myself forced to confront a new wall in my reading tastes, an allergy of sorts. I can’t read fiction about World War II. I don’t want to read fiction about World War II. Get that shit away from me—what are you kidding?—gross.

“It is a result of living in Germany. I have been here for almost ten years now, and I can’t recall a single day in recent memory when World War II didn’t come up. Let’s look at one week in the life.” Read more here.

When you decide to live in Berlin, as a student or for work, everything is an adventure. Whether deciding on which bread to choose from the myriad of tantalizing options at your local Steinecke, or simply a late night trip on the U-Bahn.

But like all things in life, the glamor fades and the honeymoon phase comes to an end. However, let this not be the end of your Berlin experience. As a tourist, the sights that you see and the places that you visit are the tip of the iceberg. Now is your time to look beyond the surface and become a true Berliner, and leave the title of “tourist” behind.
