I just joined a very interesting LinkedIn group, Expats in Germany - The Just Landed Expatriate Network, with a small but absolutely awesome subgroup, Expats in Berlin - The Just Landed Expatriate Network, and I've stumbled upon this discussion:

"Top 5" things about being an expat in Berlin What are your favorite things about being an expatriate in Berlin? Lets start up a discussion and share your personal top 5!

With no comments. Yet.
Here you can find my top five, as just posted on LinkedIn.

#1. Speaking 3 up 4 different languages every day with native speakers (one is my mother language, of course!);
#2. Learning a lot every day about cultural differences;
#3. Having new friends from every imaginable country;
#4. Eating Vegan without getting crazy to find a dish in restaurants;
#5. Watching OmU movies at movie theaters whenever I want.

Do you want some bonus?
#6. Just taking a walk in Berlin and taking photos;
#7. Seing my mother language from a different perspective.

What about other people?
A very huge percentage of Berliners are expats!
