So I know there's not to much look at in this photo. But it's not really about the photo its about what took place just seconds after I shot these two girls. We, Ed, Ashley, Grant and myself were approached by undercover train ticket checker cops. You see in Berlin you can if you want to take the chance to hop on trains without buying a ticket. I of course do not like taking such chances considering if you do get caught not only are you publicly embarrassed you also have to pay a ridiculous fine. But for some reason, and it's only in Berlin, Ed likes this gamble. I unfortunately never carry any money on me so if he doesn't spring for the ticket I have to walk on with fingers crossed. Well our luck ran out on this ride, we were approached by two unassuming ticket cops and asked, (in a full car!) to show our tickets, I of course threw Ed under the bus immediately by pointing to him to the cops and said, "ask him". Everyone tried to play dumb, (another embarrassing move) and then the cops asked us for our passports which none of us had on our persons so then they started talking about taking us in, What?! Instead though, at the next train stop they just had us get off and pay the fine, which I think might of been around 75 US dollars. Each. I think gambling sucks.
Thank goodness we were not on this train. And I'm sorry for the people who were.
Even though I was super embarrassed and had a lot of "I told you so's!", it couldn't take away how much I love this city, love the partner I was traveling around with. Next time though, I'll carry a small coin purse.
