Football Mania Again!

It was a busy weekend in Berlin. There was a major bicycle race in the city, a museum festival (Lange Nacht der Museen), a demonstration against Homophobia, and the German Football final between Munich and Dortmund. There were an estimated 1 million visitors in the city!

The city was ablaze in team colors (red/white for Munich and yellow/black for Dortmund). The noisy Munich fans outnumbered Dortmund 20-1. I made the mistake of wearing my yellow windbreaker and black t-shirt while watching a Munich rally on Boxhanger Straße. Not a good idea. In the end, Munich won as usual.
