Karl-Marx-Allee

This central street in Berlin is probably my favorite road in the capital. It is at once imposing, impressive, and impossible. To me, it is an artifact showing the grandiose project that was Eastern Germany, an ultimately misguided political system. The architecture that government commissioned was the kind really only possible in an autocratic country. The other day, I happened to ride my bike along it and took some pictures with my phone.

Karl-Marx-Allee, mon amour.
