AliCé in Wunderstadt

I realise that the title is Denglish – it’s not grammatically correct in German and doesn’t make sense in English (and the name AliCé is neither) – but I couldn’t resist it. Good Friday really lived up to its name for me.  I walked around Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg taking photographs of the incredible art of […]
