The construction work for the A100 motorway in Berlin continues. A few month ago, in the area around Kiefholzstr., Berlin, many of the abandoned allotment garden houses have been squatted by homeless Sinti and Roma families, not totally sure about this though. They made a sort of living from collecting and selling metal scrap found in this area, kids were playing in the waste lands between the train tracks and the remaining allotments.
Here's a recording of that area, from this summer. A woman is washing, kids are playing in the green. see also radio aporee ::: maps - allotment, Mergenthalerring, Neukölln, Berlin
