Walking in Berlin
This balcony is on Schlossstrasse, a fancy street in the western section of Berlin. But Berlin is a city of apartment houses with balconies, and many have plants. It is also, at this time of year, a city of bicycles. And not just for young people—mothers and fathers in business dress on a bicycle with a kid seat taking a toddler to day care on the way to work. Many of the bicycles are cruisers (no gears)—it is a very flat city.
