Berlin’s Buddy Bears and the East Side Gallery: two positive projects

Dress: H&M, Shoes: Vans

When visiting Berlin you will pretty soon discover that the city is full of bears. They are literally on practical every street corner. These so called buddy bears have been inspired by the Zurich Kuh Kultur (see photo below), another colourful street art phenomenon.

London is full of red busses and telephone boxes, like you can see in I spy with my little eye , but also full of green gardens and parks.

Today I’d like to take you to one of these; the white garden of Kensington Palace.
