The Power of Icecream

Not only in Tokyo people are willing to wait in lines to get food, no, also Berlin knows that phenomenon. And I don’t talk about times of famine during WW 2 or the years right after, I am talking about March 2007. There are supermarkets, restaurants, cafés and döner places on every corner, but still there seems to be a strong desire to wait in lines. The Tokyo metblog supposed standing around with other people all with the same aim makes you feel like being part of a hip movement. Maybe that’s it, i don’t know.
I didn’t feel like spending half an hour waiting just to get an icecream. However, althought the Tokyo-doughnut-line topped the Kreuzberg-icecream-line by far, it made me curious: I will definitly have to check out that icecream shop in Falckensteiner Str and the pizza place right opposite of it where more or less the same number of people waited. But maybe on a weekday and not on a sunny sunday afternoon.
Maybe half of the waiting folks are paid by the clever owner of the icecream shop just to stand there and attract customers?!
