Football fever

for the entire duration of the Brazilian World Cup, Union Berlin stadium in Köpenick, gave up it's playing field to couches brought in by fans in order to watch the matches. A gigantic stage was set up in front of one the stadiums stands and given a make over of 70's style wall paper with gigantic bookshelves, photo frames and of course a humungous TV screen in the centre. A real homey feel was given to a venue with capacity for 21,000 people). We got tickets to see the World Cup final here, as Mario Götze scored the winning goal for German 'Uwe' a man I had never met before hugged me and gave me his Union scarf saying "dass schenke Ich dir" Stadion An der Alten Försterei (Stadium by the old forester's house)
