February theme day: What I would miss


Having only moved to Berlin a little more than a year ago, it's hard to say what I would miss if I had to leave. I definitely like the Buddy Bears though and I'd be sad to live in a city that didn't have some cute kind of mascot like them. This dapper bear welcomes visitors to Rathaus Schöneberg. During the "divided days" it served as the Town Hall for the city of West Berlin. John Kennedy made his famous Ich bin ein Berliner speech right here on the building's front steps. Which brings up another thing I love about Berlin, all the history.

A new month is here - January seemed to fly by! For more interpretations on this month's theme click here.

  1. The city's mascot. I'll have to scroll through your blog in search of other bears. Where were you previously? Did you do a daily photo site from your other community?

    1. Just click on the tag at the bottom of the post for "Buddy Bears" and you'll see them all!
      I did have other CDP blogs. The first was in Jackson, MS from 2007 - 2011 and then in Toronto from 2011 to 2014.
      There's a link to Toronto on the sidebar.

    1. I liked to moose too! But mostly I miss the food in Toronto and just generally knowing the city. I had "my bar" and "my felafel place"... you know what I mean.

  10. That's what I would miss about Berlin--the history, not so much the bears. :-)

  13. If you do ever have to leave and think you'd miss the bears, come to Ocala, where we have horse sculptures on every other corner! :)

  15. Bears are nice mascots...if they're of the "teddy" kind. The live ones can be a little scary.
