Berlin (Sat) 1 May 2010

Been very tired walking around all the time and sleeping too little.

Got covered in red dust yesterday. Walking along, downwind from a construction site, a worker comes out and dumps a basketful of brick-dust-crap into a skip. It all got blown into me and my eyes and my mouth and everything I was holding was red dust!

Went to the Stasi Museum. That’s the German secret police from the Commie era. I can describe it as authentic at best, incredibly stodgy, bland, and boring at worst. Authentically stale is probably the word.

Didn’t help that everything inside was in German.

Public holiday today, so most things are closed. Lots of riot police and convoys of police vehicles racing down streets though. I didn’t see the riots, but groups of punks hung around.
