are filled with friends, packing, repairs to the flat and trying to pass useful things onto our friends. All of our furniture is in storage until we find a more permnent Berlin abode. The suitcase is packed and we are enjoying the last few days here. The selling of the flat officaildom has started and there are a few appointments over the next few days to take care of that. All visitors are getting to take something away with them. It is nice to pass things on to others who can make us of them. Living without furniture or many possessions is easier than I thought it might be.
