Las surrealistas (y preocupantes) ciudades fantasma de China

China es el pais que mas deuda externa posee en este momento(compró deuda Española, de EEUU etc) y si se unde reclamará el dinero de dicha deuda, por lo que si empezabamos a salir de la recesión, volveremos a ella. Sin contar que son uno de los mayores fabricantes del mundo, sino puede seguir fabricando al mismo ritmo o vendiendo al mismo precio, se nos reciente el bolsillo a todos. Imaginate tienes millones estacionados en el banco sin sacarle buen provecho, y te llega China con un cuento Chino.

Grandes edificios que seran ocupados por mucha gente y atraera mas gente. Lieux Perdus ou Abandonnés. Abandoned Berlin: Haunted by history, the ghosts of Beelitz-Heilstätten. Everybody and their dog knows about Beelitz-Heilstätten, which is why I haven’t written about it before.

Abandoned Berlin: Haunted by history, the ghosts of Beelitz-Heilstätten

Not everyone has a dog though. Some have other pets, less inquisitive or knowledgeable than dogs. So this is for the goldfish. Beelitz is where Hitler and Honecker were treated for injuries/ailments sustained in World War I and East Germany’s last days, respectively. The huge military hospital complex is abandoned now, shrouded in mystery, haunting, eerie, waiting to see what fate holds for it next... A swarm of flies rose to greet me on my maiden visit, buzzing about me furiously as if to guard the secrets of the past. The flies went berserk, in my face, my eyes, my mouth. I had to withdraw from the infuriated cloud and then it struck me: These were no ordinary flies. I regrouped, gathered myself, and plunged through the swarm, swatting wildly even as the fuckers followed me. I hurried on, there’s a lot to see. The Russians took over after the war, as is their wont.

Exploration urbaine: Le Village Olympique de Berlin des JO d'Été de 1936. Berlin remporte en 1931 le droit d'offrir aux athlètes du monde entier un terrain de jeux olympique pour les J.O de 1936.

Exploration urbaine: Le Village Olympique de Berlin des JO d'Été de 1936

La ville se lance dans la construction de structures pharaoniques. Elles permettent aux 4000 sportifs sélectionnés de concourir mais aussi de se reposer dans les meilleures conditions. 5 ans pour voir les choses en grand. Entre temps, le pays a vendu son âme au national socialisme. Le nouveau régime voit dans ces jeux l'occasion de montrer sa puissance au monde. Gwenn et la vie à Berlin / Dans un village olympique… fantôme. Un peu à l’écart de Berlin se situe l’ancien village olympique des jeux de Berlin en 1936.

Gwenn et la vie à Berlin / Dans un village olympique… fantôme

Ses jeux furent célèbre car il furent organisés par les nazis qui se servirent de cet événement pour faire de la propagande de leur idéologie xénophobe et antisémite. Pieds de nez, cette lors de ses jeux que l’athlète noir américain Jesse Owens remporta 4 médailles d’or devant les athlètes allemands soit disant supérieur… C’est donc dans un endroit fort en histoire (comme il est existe de nombreux à Berlin) que nous avons erré dans cet endroit fantomatique. Fantomatique car tous les bâtiments sont encore présents mais sans fenêtre, sans porte ou alors sellés par des planches de bois.

Olympic Village. The creation of a separate housing area for the great number of athletes attending the Olympic Games was first attempted in Los Angeles in 1932.

Olympic Village

Four years later, at the XIth Olympiad in Berlin, the concept was further developed with the construction of this tiny ‘village’ in the Brandenburg countryside, just 14 kilometers from the Olympic Stadium. Newspapers in the U.S. ran kitschy photographs in their Olympic reports featuring American athletes gathered in front of their cabins and singing folk songs after long days spent breaking world records.

During WWII the cabins and cottages were converted to an infantry training facility for the German troops, and after the war’s end the Soviet and East German military occupied the site until 1992. For many years the village was a favorite destination for day-tripping history buffs and enthusiasts of abandoned structures, and in 2004 the Olympic Village was listed as an historically protected site and officially opened to the public. Abandoned Berlin: Olympic effort for an abandoned village. Almost too knackered by the time I got there to do any exploration at all.

Abandoned Berlin: Olympic effort for an abandoned village

Cycled over 40km from Friedrichshain to Elstal, wind against me all the way, efforts compounded by several unforeseen diversions due to the slightly optimistic tactic of simply pointing the bike west. "Who needs maps anyway? " I won't be doing that again. And then I still faced the prospect of cycling back! Jaysus, I was wrecked. There used to be a time when the Olympics was interesting, and Berlin's in 1936 was the most interesting of all. Anyway, such thoughts were far from my head as I contemplated the empty buildings lurking ominously between the trees behind the fence. Urbanexploration. Base de données d'exploration urbaine.
