i love the big open, forests, rivers and lakes, the sea, the sky, landscapes to get lost in. the way they make me go all still and happy-sad inside. but still, i'm an urban girl at heart. i love berlin, the untidyness of it, the way it took me a while to warm to it, the way i still meet friends on the streets although it's a big city. i can't tell you if i like the gritty, urban places better than the green and pretty ones. i guess it's the mixture, really.
here are some impressions, taken while riding my bike through the city: haus des lehrers (house of the teacher) on alexanderplatz, a view towards the television tower from behind hackescher markt, an abandoned sausage stand, a wallpaper/graffiti nearby saying 'sausage bandits' (it has disappeared now - what a shame!).
p.s.: on second thought, i have a feeling the selection of my pictures for this week's corner view may a bit on the grey side. but i trust you'll notice that berlin is also very green, sunny and friendly when browsing through this and my other blog. don't let the grit put you off my favourite town!
thanks to jane at spain daily, there are many more corner views around the world you could stop by. try these...
