Although I´ve just read that Germany (like a lot of other countries in Europe) has systematic problems with racism, according to a UN group that visited the country in february -19, I paid Berlin a visit in december. I travelled with my husband and two friends. During our stay at Scandic Potsdamer Platz it was christmas time and the whole city bathed in christmas lights. In every square there were Christmas markets selling different kind of handcraft and of course warm gluwine. There were a lot of people everywhere, but I did´t see so many black persons in the streets though. But overall it was a very nice place and we were satisfied with the hospitality.
