Berlin is quite special when it comes to New Year’s, though not in any sentimental, kitschy way. Everyone stocks up on fireworks and lights them up at the magic hour. Though most people do this in the spirit of celebration, there’s a sizable portion of the population who enjoys taking passersby under fire, or tossing fairly powerful firecrackers under cars.
No matter, its a fantastic evening and we had a great time. The video is a collage of our New Year’s, and I think it captures the groove. The fairly stationary video segment towards the right is a zoom of the celebrations over at Brandenburger Tor, and in the middle is the TV tower at Alex.
