On last Sunday I saw on TV that the city of Berlin was a kind of city under siege, or under urge, or under the cameras from the world's press.
That singer (my personal relation aside) Robbie Williams was shaking and rocking with a concert which was broadcasted to several places and with visitors from everywhere. And that day, some people was standing or sitting, waiting for a new Kanzler, after Angela Merkel and Gerhard Shröder were having conversations.
Since yesterday Merkel is the historic first woman, first Kanzlerin in Germany. After seeing the especulations and anxiety of the people, I dare to think that there is no clear leadership in the country where I am currently living.
Something that I notticed here in Germany, in comparison with my own country, is that being Kanzler doesn't mean necessarily being in the power or being mighty, whereas in Mexico, to be a President is almost to be allmighty (and all-vulnerable I can tell). But after all this talks they had had, I am starting to think that to be a politician requires to have some power, and actually lesser than the power that one gives away. I say that because in my humble opinion I dare to think that the other guy in Merkel's party, Stoiber, wouldn't just sit and clap his hands at Merkel's work. He doesn't look like.
But I am not a critic or a politic analyzer, I am just a foreigner in a country after 4 and half years, and such decisions, directly or indirectly, affect me.
I wouldn't have paid for a concert of Robbie Williams, but I wish I saw him. I didn't vote for the german elections, but I wish I did.
