Everybody has something to say about Berlin.  Even people who have never been there seem convinced it is the best city on Earth.  Katy Derbyshire, a translator, British expat, and Berlin resident, has lived there since 1996. When I talked to her at the Frankfurt Book Fair, I asked her about her to tell Young Germany readers a little about where she lives for our series on Berlin neighborhoods.

What part of Berlin do you live in? 

KD: Mitte.

What is it like?

KD: Mitte is very, very central with a lot of culture. It’s 100 percent gentrified… It’s no longer the coolest part of town. (That, she tells me, is now Neukölln.)  It is fairly international, as well.

You can join in right here.  Then you can go read about the problems of translating that famous first sentence right here.

I feel good…

We knew from the moment we saw their happy smiling faces that it was going to be fun meeting Tony and Wilma. From their message that read “We’re on a four-month European trip for our 40th wedding anniversary…” we knew they would be the perfect first guests for us.
