I’m back from Cuba, it’s autumn and while I was cruising around the island Germany and especially Berlin continued to change: Marcel Reich-Ranicki started a second career in the ad business, Jens-Holger Kirchner is now thinking about having Parking-Zones in Prenzlauer Berg (see also post “Unser Dorf soll schöner werden II“) , and the Vietnamese grocery-store guy (not the “Markt in der Bibliothek” one – the other one around the corner on Danziger Strasse) told me about his plans to close the store, go to Vietnam to learn how to cook and open a Vietnamese Restaurant at the same spot. So we will soon have about six Vietnamese, Thai and Corean Restauants in close neighbourhood, but nowhere to go to get milk.
P.S. “Markt in der Bibliothek” is still closed. But no worries: The owner is still thinking about what to do with his place. He told me, he wont rent it. He seems to be completely aware of the excellent adress he’s got.
