When I first started articulating my interest in Berlin, some people weren’t exactly curious about it. They were puzzled. “Berlin? What’s in Berlin?” with their ill-informed expectation being I would be more interested in Paris, London, or Rome. But that didn’t concern me. As with most things in my life, I knew it would make sense to them eventually. Or it wouldn’t. And that would be okay, too. Because it made (and still makes) sense to me.”
