Discrimination based on appearance and diversity is set to a minimum. In the streets, gay people are holding hands, transsexuals dress up their gowns and walking with make up, and you can see the most unusual people, with tattoos even over their faces. What break the prejudices and ice even if you are the most conservative person, are they themselves when hold a door for you, open a gate in the park because you are with a baby carriage or they ask you for some direction so kindly with a big smile on face.
Since the beginning of May, I have been drinking coffee every day at the place called La Tazza d’oro. Sweet little coffee bar, with just a few tables outside and jazz music from radio inside. One of a very few daily places where you will hear a bit of music, at least inside. And very best […]
I’m waking up. Monday. Today is rainy, chilly. Kaja is still asleep, I have an hour for sure until she wakes up. I would now so read a good book!
I’m looking for one in vain by this flat, because every time it turns out that I here in apartment have only a few, favorite, already memorized. I remembered all that books on shelves in my apartment, in the attic in Belgrade, and becoming nostalgic. I remember the huge terrace with a deckchair and flowers.
YAAM is one of the most beautiful and favorite Berlin`s clubs. Reggae club and kids friendly place, it sounds perfect, isn’t it? This afro-reggae club is located on the banks of the riverbank, and it is made up of several mini-houses in two huge courtyards connected by a passage. It looks like a little African village with shops and even small houses on the trees.
I like to get up early especially in this pre-summer period when the days are warm and the mornings are still chill. If I wake about 7-8 and see the sun and the clear sky without clouds, it seems to me that the whole world is mine. This feeling usually disappears till noon, especially if I stay in the apartment so that whenever I can, I go out right away to keep that energy..
By coming to Berlin, I was surprised how many people were riding the bikes and how much the streets are adjusting to them. A whole families rading bikes, even grandmas and grandpas, too. Only the youngest ones, the ones in diapers, are ridden in a seat hanging on a mommy bike instead of a bucket or ridden in a trailers, different designs and sizes, larger, smaller, for one or more children. Throughout the year, even during the coldest days, parents rides children to kindergartens by bikes, and older children over the age of 4-5 are tracking them by driving their bikes regularly involved in the traffic.
As we were in airplane, I was thinking what I missed most, what I want to see most and what Belgrade makes so beautiful and unique, so Belgrade. One month before, I would say that it was quite enough to be 15 degrees while in Berlin it was barely 5, Luckily, in May the temperature in both cities was fairly equal.
Although this year is colder everywhere, the arrival of april here marks the definitive end of winter and the beginning of all spring joy . In Belgrade, this is usually at the beginning of March or in the second half of February, but for the spring in Berlin, April is more certain. If you pass […]
Compile a list of priorities and needs, it is something we have done before the start of the search for a new apartment. If it is already so difficult to find an apartment, then at least to be concerned real and satisfying one because once we sign the contract, we have to stay there at least a year. For a deposit, which is returned a few months after the eviction, we provide 3 rent in advance so that in addition to the nerves, we will have no money to seek new apartment.
When from Belgrade we read forums, realize that here very difficult to find an apartment. Then go to ads for flats and see that every day in every known end appears at least three perfect and three more acceptable apartments and that those who were in circulation prior to twenty days is still on offer. Only then you did not realize anyhing. In Belgrade, the apartments are issued for two days, or even less, and already withdrawn from the ads because they are rented. Why then in Berlin are the same ads for weeks?
