The Least Likely Favorite

I love the place we are staying. I love how much history it has and if I spoke German I would walk through knocking on doors asking to hear the residents stories (and I'm sure they are glad I don't speak German). We are staying in the only un-renovated building on our street in East Berlin.

old on a block of new

That means that the owner of this building hasn't been found and the government can't do any repairs (besides maintaining) to the building. It also means that they haven't yet kicked out the residents who lived here when East Berlin was walled in. And finally, it means the first day we arrived we were a little nervous when the address we were given matched this building.
