Korean in Berlin: Ixthys

First things first, this small diner is making no secret of its religious alignment. Some might be able to ignore this, but I found it rather weird eating my Bibimbap in a room wallpapered with hand-written bible quotes from floor to ceiling.

Shop in Berlin: Flea Market in Lichterfelde

As stated before, flea marketing in Berlin can be difficult. Knowing that, I planned some serious research in the outskirts of my normal Berlin circles and went to Lichterfelde, a district that is part of Steglitz-Zehlendorf, which has a lot of people with a rather high income and a high age – perfect flea market district, so to say.
Arriving there, the scenery is bleak – on a huge parking lot of one of those huge hardware stores, small stands are set up in between cars and orange shopping carts. No trees or pictorial food stands to beautify the picture. So we focussed on the offered goods.
