I can't believe this winter to be over yet. I bet he is just tricking us into the spring mood and then coming back, all cold, wet and nasty in two more weeks, killing all the spring flowers and freezing the pavements again. Bastard! But it already smells of spring in Berlin. It certainly does. It always catches you by surprise to get that certain smell. It's usually coming as a relief. You take a deep breath then and catch some energy for the rest of the year. Plus, people who need to go to work by bike due to the public service strike can do so without slipping down the alley.
