She had me at the gummy bear earrings. For the past 27 years, Waltraut Zille has been driving a cab in Berlin and moonlighting as a naturopath.
During our ride from Warschauer Strasse to Alexanderplatz, she also told me – in flawless English – about two Italian restaurants she loves. I’ll be heading to the west side of the city later this week to taste the (hand-made!) pasta.
In the meantime, stay tuned for some video of my conversation with the charming cabbie, who had plenty to say about being part of the 10% of women who make up Berlin’s cab driving workforce.
