Berlin: Capitalism vs Socialism

I love department stores. The windows, the selection, the shiny displays, the well cut clothes. It’s atheistic heaven. Ka De We is the largest department store in continental Europe and doesn’t disappoint.

Located in West Berlin, it was clearly maintained as an outpost of capitalist choice and prestige. A reminder to the “lucky Berliners”. I’m attending a wedding shortly after I return to the States so I was on the hunt for a dress. Ka De We is too rich for my blood (think Bergdorf’s) but the area around it has great shopping so I spent a good part of my afternoon in various dressing rooms.

And for some balance, on my way home I stopped and said hi to some old friends who did some pretty awesome things in their time and got streets named after them. Hey, Karl. High five, Rosa.
