Places - 3rd

The Swedish Program, Fall 2007

Two friends and I decided to wander around East Berlin, not really looking for anything specific. Suddenly we came upon what we decided had to be an anarchist squat/community.  The graffiti and signs pictured are behind an open gate covered in tarp, and the front yard space was covered in bicycles and trash. We took pictures and left.  Shortly thereafter one friend realized she had lost her glove there, and we went back to find it. We never found the glove, and concluded that it was eaten by this magical, dirty, and beautiful anarchist village.
