Spray paint the walls: Street art in Amsterdam and Berlin

On our recent trip to Berlin and Amsterdam, we had some specific "sightseeing" that was more up our "alley".  This included checking out local punk and metal bars and, of course, the Ramones Museum in Berlin -- but more on that later...

On our fantastic journey, we found that the street art spoke to us.

From the backstreets by the coolest punk bar in Amsterdam (and maybe almost anywhere) -- Cafe the Minds -- to the Stra├čes of the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg area of Berlin, including the Eastside Gallery paintings on 1.3 kilometers of the Berlin Wall, street art was everywhere.  Here are a few shots of some of this amazing painted landscape...
