first of all: The old question of which preposition belongs to the District of Wedding, can’t answer this Text, the last valid. Here is a list of commonly discussed variants, in the perceived order of their popularity: 1. in the Wedding; 2. on / uff’m Wedding; 3. in Wedding; 4. at the Wedding. Search what. To each his own Wedding.

More or less uncontroversial, however, is that the Wedding is “coming from”. You can hear the decades, it has become the Berlin commonplace that the Wedding neighborhood is on the verge of the breakthrough to the next Hip. As the cliché has led to the independence so much so that by the “Coming” of the Weddings, probably the speech will be when the Hipster caravan has swept the Hamlet of long ago.

Because, of course, the Wedding is long since – and probably nowhere so well as in the “Falafel Dream”, a converted BVG-Bus, of 1977, for a couple of years at the Miller road Park.

Wael adapted rather his map. To distinguish he had converted, for a time, even completely vegan: no Halloumi and no Ayran, nothing. “But then,” he recalled with a sigh, “came the Hardcore Vegans”. Great Store, they said – and asked Wael, how long he might live because even already vegan. As he explained to them that he was personally neither Youwin a Vegan nor a vegetarian, because he could not imagine a life without meat at all, it went off. “Murderers!”, the a called. “You’re taking advantage of Vegans!”, the other roared. “Your bad energy passes to the food!”, shouted a third. At the end of Wael resumed Halloumi and Ayran on the map and überpinselte on the Bus the word “vegan” with “vegetarian-vegan”. Since then, the wedding Hardcore went to eat-Vegan somewhere else. “Now is the “normal” Vegans only,” said Wael. “With which one can live.”
