Today i've received 9 great cards and this really brightened my day :) This and a new trip. Today i've booked an hotel in Barcelos, a city in nothern Portugal. I'll travel alone and i'll visit the city alone but the next day i'll meet a friend in another city. This is the 1st time i'll visit a place that i don't know all by myself. The city isn't that big and believe i won't have any problems. We'll see what happens.

This is a card from the Scheunenviertel, a neighborhood of Mitte in the centre of Berlin. It is situated to the north of the medieval Altberlin area, east of the Rosenthaler Straße and Hackescher Markt.

Until the Second World War it was regarded as a slum district and had a substantial Jewish population with a high proportion of migrants from Eastern Europe.
Prior to World War I the Berlin City Council (Magistrat) redeveloped parts of the area. Following German reunification the Scheunenviertel, together with the neighbouring Spandauer Vorstadt, has become a fashionable district popular with younger people. - in:
