Saturday night was spent exploring Kottbusser Tor with a friend who unbelievably had her first excursion to Kreuzberg after living in Berlin for longer than any of us.
We began with a visit to Luzia - complete with vintage furniture, baroque wallpaper and built-in human size dollhouse. Across the road shining brightly were the words "Insert coin" - sitting pretty next to a trashy billboard. For only 10 cents in the slot machine this dico art installation named tamamümemu began. A big disco ball started spinning, lights shined bright, a gay anthem blared (Chaka Khan's 'I'm ever woman') and 3 pairs of happy feet danced up a storm. Much to the onlookers amusement.

Sunday began with sunshine and basketball
Sunday was filled with pretty friends, tasty brunch and a cappuccino stop by Gorlitzer Park.
Then Sunday ended with my very first beef and ale pie.
