SOOOO Berlin

I arrived in Berlin, got comfy in my new Hostel & sat down to watch the DVD “Catch me if you can” as a little monday night relaxation. WHile watching the movie I met an American dude called Forrest & his girlfriend Aleara from Spain. After the movie we decided to go out & experience a bit of Berlin.
The Fun began here.
The girl at the desk of the Hostel told us to go to a particular street, which we managed to find after a short while. The street was almost empty. We ended up going into a metal bar. Three preppy looking people into a hardcore rocking room. Lets just say that we got a couple of “outsider” stares.
We hung there for about an hour, then headed out looking for somewhere else. We found a place that was just closing & sent Forrest in to bug the owner to tell us of somewhere else to go that was happening. After Aleara and I waited for a while, we headed in to find him & he was chatting to two artists.
Well half an hour later, this guy & girl lead us to a kind of “underground” club in some other part of eastern Berlin.
OK, you are with a bunch of artists, they take you to an underground club. What do you expect to find the main thign they do there?
That´s right…
Ping Pong!
It looked like an almost abandoned shop space if not for the nice looking designer lights & stuff. There was a set of decks set up, lots of electronica music, a makeshift bar, and a big pingpong table, with a bunch of people hanging around it & playing 8 person rounders!
As I sat on a comfy chair, getting the vague whisps of Marijuana smoke from a group in the corner, listening to another group discussing something very important, sometimes in German, sometimes in English, and watching a bunch of people play Ping Pong at 3AM! I felt that finally, I had arrived in Berlin.
