I realize I have not yet written anything about my new work space. For several weeks already, I have been renting my friend Rebecca’s desk at her office in Kottbuser Tor, Kreuzberg while she is on vacation. It’s very different from Mitte and often feels like it’s not in Germany at all but rather some warm, vibrant country that one might visit on vacation. There’s always lots of street life and many great lunch options. I also really like the people who share the office and find I’ve been much more productive working with them around than I was by myself.
