today, it is not a pleasant holiday topic – no palm trees or craft beers will be involved.
a friend of mine went to to checkpoint charlie and came back without her wallet.
this is where beer comes into play, however for the wrong reason.
there are more and more pickpockets, thieves and mischevious city dwellers who make life a pain.
please do not sign any petitions, dance with strangers (except for the cute swedish guy) or help others to find a spot on the map.
thimblerig is another berlin classic to rip tourists off. trust me, you will not win.
please be espacially wary in places with many tourists, i.e. brandenburg gate, checkpoint charlie, alexanderplatz
just check the map below.
