Keeping one's humour is important in cities like Berlin. Like now: after several technical flaws most of Berlin's S-Bahn trains were retracted for security maintenance. The S-Bahn is something like Berlin's traffic artery; due to the security checks normal processing of the city trains won't be possible until December! 20 years after the reunification it's again difficult to move from the western to the eastern parts of Berlin. According to this, the headlines of Berlin's newspapers were sounding quite alarming last week, only to asseverate on the next day: 'Berlin - stronger than Chaos!'
