After weeks spent thinking I wouldn't ever find somewhere to live, I have just been offered two places in the space of one day. So here are the options.
1. Live in Torstraße, about 200 metres from Rosenthalerplatz with a very nice guy called Murphy in a nice Altbau apartment.
2. Live in Kreuzberg, with 4 or 5 (I forget) quite friendly people from an array of different European countries. They are all older than me and have a definite hippy vibe (they've got a dog). Location is very cool if not beautiful.
What to do?
