We finally found it. The apartment to show on House Hunters International. The place we might really call a home after move after move. The apartment we could love in Berlin.
There was a gap of a week from when we had to be out of the last place, and into the new one. Shit.
Luckily, we found an affordable short term lease that was even convenient to move between the 2 places - sold!...or leased, rather. Here is the apartment tour #7 of our short term in Neukölln.

You know, considering all German months are masculine (der Dezember, der Januar, der Februar...), April sure is a bitch. It's a common saying here in Germany (and Berlin in particular) that April has no idea what it wants. One minute the sun is shining and you’re singing praises to the gods, and the next moment you're freezing your balls off. Such was Ebe's and my experience just this past Saturday...

Kreuzberg was the first kiez (neighborhod) we lived in this time around. The apartment was a really lovely, if awkwardly arranged one bedroom with crazy high ceilings and a great view of street life out front. We moved there in November (always practical) and it was one of the snowiest winters Berlin had ever seen. Tromping 5 minutes to the Netto filled your boots with snow and made you really question if you needed that tube of toothpaste today.
