|De-icing in Toronto|
The symbol of the city of Berlin is a bear and all over the city you will find buddy bears, an art project that was started in 2001. They make a good photo op so we decided to take pictures of all the bears that we saw. There are some 140 full-size bears but obviously we didn't see all of them.

|US Liberty bear|
Some of these bears were not full size bears but rather smaller ones that we saw in stores. The US Liberty bear, found at the US Embassy, was the only one we couldn't approach as you needed to go inside the lobby of the embassy. Most of the other bears were outside but even those that were inside were in places open to the public such as train stations or stores.
