Friedrichshain Kreuzberg are formed by former East Berlin as Friedrichshain and West Berlin as Kreuzberg. They are both linked through the historic Oberbaum Bridge that used to be the Berlin border crossing for pedestrians. Today the two districts are the most hip in Berlin. With all its walls sprayed with Graffiti and art, pubs, restaurants and shops. Worth the walk, or a bicycle ride.

Walk throughout Neukolln neighborhood, visit the open air East Side Gallery with the international street art graffiti, pass by the hackeschen markt and reflect within:
What is life if it wasn’t created for us to sees each other in it. Earth is round for a reason, we each live in the total opposite of one another. We all reflect on each other.. What I see in you I see in me and it is wonderful to experience the warmth of our souls connecting through soil. We are all one united through light thread and spirit. Looking deep into history I resemble repetition in everything only in different uniforms and labels. It is like we live the lives of our ancestors when they lived the lives of our reflectors. Start looking through the eyes of one another as your own reflection, look deep into their souls and realize that in there is the kingdom of treasures. Miracles do happen and wishes come true, but if you don’t put a little effort in there then it is not worth wishing, for nothing is meant to happen effortlessly and nothing requires the whole wide world to change in harmony with your beliefs and thoughts. You alone can set foot, open a new door or fix a broken one. Alone through energies of one another, through the soil that unites our energies, one person can make a difference.
