Yes, Berlin is a city of freedom of art but I don't really like that a lot of places are dirty, you can find a lot of buildings with boarded doors and windows and there are a lot of homeless people here. But the city is great, yeah

Berlin No. 3. :Monocle Quality of Life Ranking
(London Magazine)

1.Tokyo
2.Vienna
3.Berlin & Munich
5.Melbourne
6.Copenhagen
7.Sydney
8.Zurich
9.Hamburg
10.Madrid

Quote:
03. Berlin: Truly public spaces
Until just a few years ago, Berlin’s quality of life was measured mostly by its cost of living. Thanks to an overabundance of residential buildings, rents were laughably cheap, attracting creative types from all over the world seeking freedom from financial pressures. The boon has since ended and the hype has passed but the city has maintained its position in our rankings. Why?

Maybe the most important factor is that there isn’t one Berlin. Each district has such a distinct flavour that travelling from leafy Zehlendorf to glossy Mitte and on to rugged Neukölln feels like visiting completely different cities. (Thanks to good public transport and bike and car-sharing options, this is easy.) The variety has led to intense loyalties around neighbourhoods and, for a city of 3.5 million people, it can feel surprisingly village-like.

Berlin is also one of Europe’s most multicultural cities: more than half of its residents aren’t native to the city. Not only is English spoken nearly everywhere but in many cafés in Mitte, Kreuzberg and Neukölln it is the official language, as the requirement for staff to know German is increasingly redundant. The reason may be that their bosses don’t speak it either: despite Germany’s reputation for bureaucracy, opening a business in Berlin usually requires just one visit to a public office and paperwork is available in many languages.

Berlin’s defining feature used to be the presence of world history on every corner; today the ubiquity of great restaurants seems like a more important characteristic. From a city that used to dance, Berlin has become a city that eats. Food now attracts more creative energy than the many technology start-ups that dominated Berlin a few years ago.

Lacking the legacy industries of other German urban centres, Berlin has done much to support entrepreneurialism and subsidise culture. The result is that it’s the world’s only city with three opera houses, many of Germany’s most cutting-edge theatres and a museum that houses everything from ancient artifacts to quirky industrial objects.

Still, Berlin is at its best when the government keeps its distance. A legacy of the post-reunification anarchy is the strong sense of ownership residents have over their city. Most parks don’t close at night, the curfew for bars still seems to depend on what they negotiate with their neighbours and residents regularly turn the spaces around trees in the street into miniature gardens. This understanding that public space truly belongs to everybody has given Berlin a strong sense of freedom. And it survives in an age when many other cities are experiencing security clampdowns. The British embassy continues to be more heavily guarded than Angela Merkel’s private residence, which is recognisable only by two police officers strolling the vicinity.

A creative’s guide to Berlin


Quote:
The year 2009 saw Berlin labelled the “coolest city in Europe”, and it has successfully sustained that reputation since. Berlin is not only the capital of Germany but the hub of techno music, avant-garde art and gourmet street food. It is a place for the creative soul, fashioning both a relaxed and energetic vibe. It’s a diverse metropolis, with an ingrained taste for change. With its youthful and tolerant mentality, Berlin leads the way in innovative design.

Amidst its artistic flair, Berlin is together, industrial and charming. Although not quintessentially known for being beautiful, its tree-lined canals and peaceful Tiergarten district, crafts a calm and comfortable feel amongst Berliners, continuously deceiving tourists of its hidden splendour.

As David Bowie once said “Berlin: the greatest cultural extravaganza that one could imagine”, and he couldn’t be more right. Its creative synergies, free-spirited climate and cheap rent have turned the German capital into a major magnet for artists from around the globe.

I know of Berlin mostly through the music, especially techno. Monolake, Shed, Villalobos, Recondite, the list goes on.

I don't know why you have to feel that rebellious, but there's got to be something of Berlin in there indeed.

In any case, random and casual sex is pretty useless to both little children and real adults.
It only brings about frustration, helpless jealousy and traumas. Why would you have to go through this type of unpleasant things?

For example, did you take a look at guys going to prostitutes? They are a nightmare to these poor enslaved women serving them against their own will. That's obviously not what you want to be.

You want to be a seducer, don't you? Ha ha, I know... Well, you've got some real assets to be that real seductive thing of your dreams. Trust in your real things.

Showing off sex abilities is pretty useless. Anyone can have sex, even chimpanzees.
