    Probably put this in channel zero. But anyway, I was there in October. Food at restaurants and shit are more expensive because you're using the Euro, not the dollar. Best bet is to go to grocery stores like we did, but then again we were on tour for a month over there. There is TONS of graffiti everywhere. It's real dope, unfortunately I didn't paint or anything while I was over there. Didn't really have time to. You should have fun though.

    There are 2 graf shops opposite each other on Samariterstr (in the east with a subway station with the same name) and loads of young'uns hang around outside.

    Graff is eveywhere, loads of huge tracksides and loads of roofs/roller lean overs (especially near Samariterstr).

    Just live on sharwma kebabs; much nicer than any kebab you'll get in the UK and about 1.50 euros. OR go to a vietnamese restuarant for cheap meals

    Everything is cheaper in the inner suburbs of Berlin. The city is a bit more expensive. But well, Berlin is big, so you will find your cheap "Döner" (€2 is OK, €1 is cheap).

    We have many graffiti shops here. If you want I could tell you the adresses.
    Nearly all trainstations and many other places are buffed every day because at the moment graffiti is a big term in politics - so they have to keep the city as clean as it is possible. The law against graffiti has just been tightened too.
    But the city is burning more than ever (including more toys than ever)!

    Well I posted links for probably the 2 biggest graf shops out there and someone else offered to post more info other ones. What's your problem?
     
  12. Use the 12oz search function. There is a ton of info on Berlin on here already.

    Berlin is the greatest and cheapest city in Europe. And has the biggest graffiti secene too.

    Get going, quit complaining.

    Shops you can check out:
    Overkill Shop - very nice
    Mad Flavour in Krummestrasse.
