When I arrived at Berlin and got on a tram and took a seat near the door, a tomato was thrown just before the door was closed.
It hit the window and two people in front of me got a broken piece of the tomato. I was safe but my big baggage got a tiny piece of the broken tomato.
The people in front of me looked rather laughing than angry. I asked a woman next to me why the tomato was thrown and she answered it is "just for fun". It is scary to say the least and pretty disgusting, never be a "fun"!
Then, when I got on another tram later, I found a trace of tomato that had been thrown at the train!
Is this "tomato terror" prevalent in Berlin? How likely is it and is it also true of other regions in Germany as well?
Anything you can do to prevent being the victim (other than staying at the middle of the tram...)?
