Berlin, in cartoon form

My time in Berlin, dear reader, is slowly drawing to a close. And so it’s time now for some retrospection. Much of this blog has focused on cultural differences between Germany and the United States: the things we Americans admire here, the things we miss, and the things that just perplex us.
