The band Tokio Hotel.

That means lots of teenies who come here just to stand in the same spot as Bill Kaulditz in the Bravo photo shot. I wouldn't mind that, but that spot is very close to where I live. I don't know how many times I have run into these nutters - literally. They almost always stand on the bicycle pathway in order to get just the right angle as the Bravo photographers.

The Annual Calgary Stampeede and Exibition... deffinitly the largest rodeo in canada and clamed to be the largest rodeo in the world. It is deffinitly and intereting sight as you get thousands of people who normaly dress all ""normal" and buisness like wearing cow boy hats and tacky jewlery. asside from that we also had the 88 winter olimpics. this is well over now but a lot of the facilities are still here and they are popular training sights for athletes.

We're known for being "Music City" and having the team in the NFL with the best record (this season, anyway.)

Oh yeah, and country music, I guess.

Hoorah Nashville.

Berlin is famous for many things like the Berlin wall, reunification, the raisin bombers that supplied food in Western Berlin during the Berlin blockade, etc.

More trivial things are:

The Currywurst (sausage in a tomato sauce that is topped up with curry powder)
Doner Kebab was invented in Berlin in the 1970s
Rent is cheaper than in any other Western European capital (yay, for that!)
The beach bars in summer (real sand included!)
great public transport that runs all night
Techno and the nightlife that never stops (note: The loveparade is no longer in Berlin, though)

And above all I find it a very interesting, multicultural, tolerant and livable city .
