A few steps away from the ALDI shop is the entrance to S-Bahnhof Friedenau. We used the S-Bahn (city-train) frequently. Martin often went to do some shopping at ALDI’s for us. He did not take very long to go there and back. I probably needed at least twice as much time to walk there for I walk so much slower than Martin.

We had also an EDEKA  store very close by to where we lived. Martin would quite often do some shopping there as well. The following pictures I took close to Rubensstrasse.

We were one floor above ground-level and had this view into a courtyard from our living-room window.

During the day often would come trucks and/or workers into the courtyard.

    We had a good time, didn’t we? Most streets in Berlin are tree lined. Berliners like the outdoor life Berlin is providing. Looking at those pictures, I become nostalgic.

      I too liked this area, Berlioz. Isn’t it amazing that the houses in that area were built in the late 1800s or very early 1900s, that means before World War One! A lot of these houses would have been severely damaged by bombs during World War Two. It’s a pleasure to see them so beautifully kept and restored.

    Some of your streets remind me of those I have walked in Santiago, they have a Colonial style about them and the architecture is very cosmopolitan or Bohemian in some ways.
    Beautiful clear pictures Uta.
