Last Sunday was the official day of the beginning of Spring here in Berlin, or at least the first day the weather generally agreed with the fact it’s supposed to be warmer by now. I went out of my house and walked along with lots of other Berliners to Hasenheide park, where traces of snow could still be seen. In the center of the park there is a petting zoo and also some Llamas. Walking through the leafy park was great, relaxing and also pretty muddy. I continued my Sunday walk by going to Tempelhofer field, a former airport in the middle of Berlin, built by the Nazis as the gate to the city, that has ceased to operate in 2008 and now serves as a big park. Such a big open space in the middle of the city is indeed something special, even though I feel that Berlin has more nature than any other big city I’ve ever visited.
The field was full of people biking, skating, running and I just felt that the sky was nearer than ever.
