New Year's Eve in Berlin

Berliners celebrate the new year by congregating in huge numbers and shooting off lots of fireworks in close quarters. E. and I wandered along Unter den Linden toward the Brandenburg Gate...

... but ended up spending most of the evening around Potsdamer Platz.

A year ago we were in Vienna for New Year's Eve, and Berlin, for all its danger and craziness, is tame by comparison. Anyhow, in Vienna we rode bumper cars in the Prater amusement park on New Year's Eve. This year we slid down an artificial sledding hill on inner tubes. I sense the making of a tradition. Next year... Ferris wheel?
