At the end of June last year me and my friend Michael flew from Tokyo to Berlin to meet 9 of my friends who were over for a long weekend. For the first 3 days we stayed in East Berlin and the last 3 days we stayed with my friends on the west side, quite close to Checkpoint Charlie.
The place we stayed at in East Berlin wasn’t the greatest. Infact, it was a complete craphole if im honest. The beds killed my back and the hostel was situated in what can only be described politely as ‘not a nice area’. Ok, it wasn’t that bad but it was hardly the hilton!
I took a few photos from my window on the first day. Check them out :)
On the 2nd day my mate Michael was looking out the window and said ‘Have a look at this’. This is what I saw
At first glance you probably don’t notice anything different from the photo I had taken the day before. However, if you look closer you will notice that there is a man sleeping at the top of the chimney.
The pictures above don’t show how tall and thin this chimney was. We checked it out from the ground and it was really thin – quite simply, if the guy had to jerk out of sleep quickly he would no doubt have fell to his death. We went out for a few hours and saw some museums and when we came back he was gone however we still couldn’t work out why the guy wanted to sleep up there for hours.
Strange to say the least! What’s the strangest place you’ve ever slept?
