This is how they celebrate New Year’s Eve in Berlin: Lots of fireworks on the streets. I love it. No really, I love it! It’s like a war zone without the war; everyone is relaxed and happy.

Last year, I celebrated with Oscar Swartz on Frankfurter Allee. This year I changed Friedrichshain for Neukölln and celebrated the new year on Sonnenallee. I hadn’t experienced the custom to shoot things inside before. This is what our entrance looked like afterwards:

As they say here: Guten Rutsch!
