Verena Gerlach writes: Winter is over! Yesterday, the Germans got the summer time back. We now are one hour earlier again. And this morning I also found the first bit of sunshine on our balcony! Plus 18°C and sunny today.

Relating to Erik’s walk around town, I would like to share the first signs of spring in Kreuzberg (Berlin) with you. What you should know is, that it is very important to be a real Kreuzberger. (Hard as nails. – Ed.)

This sticker is for a movie about a famous outdoor swimming pool in the neighborhood: Prinz(essinn)enbad. Translation: “I’m from Kreuzberg, you pussy.” The pool will reopen next month, so it is just a short time to get back in shape.

But what is so special about springtime in Kreuzberg? Just have a look to Nature, shooting fresh street art and street culture.
