The ‘Nebelkrähe’ or fog-crows are flying beneath the low clouds. You see the birds everywhere in Berlin – hopping, surly silhouettes against the snow. They seem bolder than their London counterparts, they stop to look at you and hunch their foggy-silver shoulders.

The ‘Palast der Republik’ is being demolished. The futuristic DDR parliament building is being levelled to make way, first for the world cup and then to rebuild an ornate replica of a lost Prussian palace. The future turned out to be riddled with asbestos and now its being replaced with past.
