Hidden Corners.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 26, 2012 in Personal |

Yesterday I had a little bit of time on my hands, so I went for a walk around one of the smallest areas within Bremen: Schnoor. This is a sort of artists’ quarter although, I have discovered, less so than it once was. Apparently in the Sixties – mythical times! – there were far more Bohemian artists here and a completely different sort of lifestyle.

Even so, it is fascinating to see the little alley ways and hidden streets, cobbled over and almost impossible for a car to get through. And the size of some of the houses!

There was a recent discussion in the States about how anyone could live in an apartment of three hundred square feet, claiming that it must be far too small for a normal couple and more suited to a single person. Imagine what it is like for those who live in this wonderful house.

Not that I agree with the discussion on apartment size, big isn’t all that important. What matters is that you have all you need and a roof over your head. No matter how many discussions there may be, most Americans live in apartments smaller than three hundred square feet; they can’t afford anything larger. But, surprisingly enough, these people weren’t mentioned in the discussion; poverty doesn’t even have a place here.

Love & Kisses, Viki.
