Berlin Dispatch: Spotted Berlin Kidz

If you know the Berlin Kidz you think about adrenaline every time you see their bi-color Pichação verticals on the side of a building – or smokestack. As foreigners, the official language is daunting enough, but this twisted Cyrillic scrawled while rappelling downward with can in hand.

Oh sure, it’s not as thrilling as parkour perhaps, and certainly, the speed can’t match train surfing, which the masked crew is known to do, but these cryptic missives are spooky in their otherness, their mystery.  Yesterday just hanging out in one of our favorite BN neighborhoods we seemed to see Berlin Kidz everywhere we went.

Is that a ghost, or a human replica? The figure was blowing around and banging into the bricks. Yikes!
