I generally dislike articles that sound like advertising,
especially when they are written about foreign cities. You
know the type? Like, how everything is good in XYZ and people
are nicer and girls/boys are prettier and
things are cheaper and nobody works and everybody's happy.
A couple of years back I felt it was appropriate to
comment on the much promoted virtues of Buenos Aires
Right now, I feel the same
way about Berlin, except I can not claim to have lived there
myself, so I only have my scepticism to go by...
