There is always a myth about a city that may or may not line up with the reality of what it’s like to live in that city. For Berlin, the myth is that it’s incredibly cheap, with endless resources, and everyone there is creative. This myth does not line up with reality. Berlin has the fastest growing property rates in the world and locals are being pushed out by rising rents and housing shortages. The myth is helping to destroy what is and was unique about the city. But one myth about Berlin that it does live up to is that it offers a temporary home to the rootless and the restless. Jessa sits down with C.C. O'Hanlon, an Australian living in Berlin, about the myth of the city, what it promises, and what it actually offers.
