Keb’ Mo’ is a 68′ still creative Bluesman from Los Angeles who received a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album 2018 “TajMo” (2017). It was the effect of his cooperation with Taj Mahal. Listen.
Read excellent interview with Keb’ Mo’.
Listen also to one of the most representative song from Keb’ Mo’ solo creative output. It’s a great, traditional, classy Blues.

Berlin is the capital of Germany and the biggest city on the list above. Well, you really need a professional guide if you want to know Berlin well. However, it would be a waste of time and you could feel even disappointed if you go to Berlin without preparation. When I came to Berlin for the first time in my life, I remember that a Filipino friend of mine talked loud via phone to wish all the best to somebody who had his birthday. It was exactly in the tram from central station to our hotel. Two local passengers winced and showed a courteous sign to us that we need to keep silence in the tram. I’m sorry but… At the same time, I used to hear the German language each weekend when I lived in Amsterdam. I speak Dutch enough to recognize that my Amsterdamesse co-passengers were German, not Dutchie. I will tell more: few of my German mates admit that despite distance, they actually prefer to drive for weekend parties in Amsterdam, not in Berlin.
You can like Berlin if you prepare well before your visit. If you are a passionate about war themes, yeah, it can keep you busy the whole week in Berlin. But really, it’s not a problem – if you don’t. Then choose a Museum Island! More:
If you think that Berlin is a city of crazy parties, then you are right. But most of these parties are kept in electronic music style. Perhaps you prefer rock music? Keb’ Mo’ is for you!
My definition of sensible foreign holidays is that you basically go somewhere abroad to feel the best of what your destination has to offer, but you can not experience the same at home on good conditions.
So what about Trabi Safari kind of party?
Exactly in the same location of the Trabant attraction, there is also an opportunity to take a balloon ride for only 30 euros. Where else would you be able to fly with a balloon for just 30 euros? Practical tip: don’t stress your team with there is a huge DIE written on this balloon (psst!)
RICH OR POOR
If you read this, you are already way ahead of many of my friends and your friends. They often go to Berlin and think that they are in Paris or that they are in the richest German city.
Sorry. I took the following table from the polish edition of book “L’Allemagne du XXIe siècle, une nouvelle nation”(2015) by Gougeon Jacques – Pierre:
It proofs that Berlin is (at least was around 2014) a land with one of the highest unemployment rate (among all German lands), higher than average poverty rate, definitely the highest debt amount per citizen and that Berlin receives the highest support from German budget. You just need to be aware.
There is something Berlin’s surroundings has in common with Paris, but you need to know where to search: not exactly in Berlin but in Potsdam.
It’s a Schloss Sanssouci, German version of Parisian Chateau De Versailles. You can take a guided tour from Berlin to Sanssouci (include transportation from/to Berlin, guide and entrance ticket)
However, Berlin is the fastest developing city in Germany (while Darmstadt is the German city best prepared for the future and Munich is currently in the best position in Germany).
You can find huge and extremely diversified activity offer in Berlin but you need to make your task before going there. The more effort you put into Berlin beforehand, the more you will enjoy during your actual visit. Don’t go there only for concert and for walk around central station haha, don’t waste your sunlight in Berlin! Call me blunt but I write it in sake of your satisfaction. I want to make my readers ahead of other people who don’t care what I say.
