I first visited Berlin during a work assignment back in 1998. The city had been reunited for almost a decade, but the infrastructure had not yet followed suit: parts of the city’s iconic S-Bahn network were still being rebuilt and reopened. More, the “new” centre around Potsdamer Platz was one gigantic building site.
But one thing was the same then as it was last year when I renewed my acquaintance with Berlin, and that was the citizens’ love of currywurst. That’s right: traditional German sausage, chopped up and smothered with curry sauce. And there are hundreds of places across the city where you can partake in the ritual.
I never did the currywurst thing, but as this clip shows, Berliners love the stuff. Each to their own.
