Berlin's Festival of Lights 2012

is currently underway. This annual event allows Berlin to artistically illuminate many of its historic buildings and landmarks. In the past, this has been one of my favorite events. 

Unfortunately, this year's spectacle has been marred by subway construction along Unter den Linden. The cordoned off streets and sidewalks have constricted auto, bicycle, and foot traffic making it uncomfortable to navigate from one site to another. This is especially problematic on the weekends when there are huge crowds. I went on Saturday, but wish I had waited. The Festival continues until October 21th. It's an event to see but only on the weekdays.
