Looking part 2

Graffitti has many faces here. Should Helmut be here? He loves it. Yesterday we had a huge “small” breakfast for 4 euros in a really funky café with nice music and people sitting around playing board games, where we opened our office and sat for hours, getting our appointments set up. We looked at about 6 apartments, but none came even close to the one we like. The new ones are weird, bathrooms too big and complicated, one room being declared 2 rooms because it serves two functions. The one we like has very little storage space, so we’re brainstorming ways to make it work. A real challenge. Makes it interesting. We have, however, come to the bitter realization that it’s not good for hosting prolonged visitors. After all, no matter what you do, it’s all one open space.

  1. Liebigstraße 14 (photo at top) was evacuated by 2,500 policemen last week. One of the last alternative cheap housing projects – set up by squatters in 1990 – new owners since 1999 – eviction orders passed in January.
