A short week of jolly Berlin crowned by crazy thunderstorms on Wednesday is almost over and we’re heading into a weekend with weather forecasts being so so, but still warm enough to thank the Saint Peter every moment every day for this unbelievable temperatures (remember last year, folks). However, if you wanna use the slightly cloudy prospects to read up on Berlin related articles that popped up the past week, we might have something for you:
Finding good links is like finding hidden eggs on Easter sunday, sometimes it takes you a long time, but in the end you get the Easter egg made of the best chocolate with the sweetest fillings.
This week, thanks to Easter, the Links in Berlin come early: a decorated basket full of lovely interviews, photo essays and some tips for delicious food…
It’s been a slow week on this very blog, maybe that’s due to the slightly lower spring temperatures, reminding all of us that summer is still about two months away (if we’re lucky).

But this is on us – the people using and enjoying the parks are also in responsibility to leave them as pretty as possible. Without wanting to sound overly Leslie Knope here (I wish I had her stamina) – but thanks to a sudden rush of energy on Twitter, we decided to found a group on Facebook to discuss further action – it’s called Keep it Green and you should all join.
We saw a quite impressive amount of hail going down this week, which might have been exactly what Florian meant when he told me that Berlin’s gonna pay for all those very beautiful but very early spring days we enjoyed this March.
