Berlin, the capital of Germany and home to artist, Bohemianism, hipsters, and one of the best party scenes in all of Europe. But, Berlin is also known for something else…dog dookie. Everywhere you go in this city you are most likely to step in a heep of shxt.
Why? Well, Berlin has a motto that says you can be who you want to be void of any responsibility or repercussions of your actions. That means Berliners have grown up their whole lives during and saying stupid things without consequences. This motto also applies to the wonderful dog owners of Berlin. The ones who never clean up after their dogs if nobody isn’t around to see their dog take a massive shxt!
Walking in Berlin is the equivalent of walking in old Europe of the 1400s. Back then, people would throw their shxt out the window since they didn’t have a sewage system. And to make matters worse I live south of the city in the suburbs. My area is a long way from the hustle and bustle of berlin. Here, the area is quiet and consists of young families and old people. But my area is also known for being one of the most affluent areas in Berlin which isn’t bad either.
I love living on this side of town because of the beautiful nature. But that changes when the weekend comes around. What happens during the weekend you ask? Well, this is how my street looks when everyone from the city descends on my neighborhood. Now, usually you can find a parking space but not on the weekends.
When I was growing up I never considered myself the wearing sunglasses type. Even in my early twenties while living in Cleveland I never wore sunglasses. And the few times I visited Europe before moving here I never wore them.
It wasn’t until I moved to London that I started to wear them but even then it wasn’t that much. It wasn’t until I moved to Germany that I started to wear them more frequently. Though out the years I wasted my money on cheap sunglasses. Most of the time they would break apart after one accidental fall or being set upon. One day I just had enough of wasting my money on cheap glasses.
So I started to look online for better quality glasses to purchase. I wanted sunglasses that represented who I was. I was looking for something that would never go out of style…I was looking for glass-wear that said timeless. Granted I was never the person who believed in spending large sum of money on designer wear. Look at Ray-Bans for example, which I think are just ugly with their small aviator’s frames.
Nonetheless, people spend money on those overhyped sunglasses. The sunglasses I pick would have to be cooler. In 2013 or 14, I can’t remember now, but I managed to purchase the “Knoxville XL Sunglasses” from a company in California called Electric. I was so impressed with these sunglasses that I bought a (yellow and black frames with dark yellow lenses) second pair, “Electric Visual Flip Side.“
The last one is rare given the fact when I looked online I was unable to find them now. The texture, the frame, the way they set comfortably on my face. Everything about these glasses just blew me away. I guess now I understand why some people pay extra money for high quality glasses. It’s 2020 and I still wear these glasses throughout the year.
