Staying somewhere new.

February 24, 2009

I had to leave my hostel for the weekend; all beds were full because there was a big punk rock concert here. So I joined the wonderful world of couch surfing and tried my luck with the kindhearted hosts of Berlin. What I found was Permanent Hospitality Berlin, where I have decided to stay until I find a room of my own. It is a big apartment full of people that live together and do projects together and open their house for couchsurfers galore. There are several sleeping rooms (just for sleeping) and then a social room, a private/chill out room, and a work room where the technology lives.  It’s a really cool, well organized space and I’m glad I found it. Also, it’s a lot cheaper to stay here than in a hostel and has a better sense of community. Its been good to cook and eat with people (don’t want to overdose on kebab – which is spelled kebap here – to soon). Also, its nice to have a place to hang out with other people. Not a lot of German spoken around here, though – this house is populated by Canadian, French, Spanish, Romanian, Italian, Danish, Belgian… and new people come through every day.
