people stories from the public square Alexanderplatz

Despite the winter draught underground a curly-haired guy is fanning himself with the welcome package of a Berlin bank making his hair move music-video-style.

A pimp-looking man with unwashed baggy jeans buys a single dark red rose at the metro flower shop.

“Cindy,” shouts the homeless after his dog. “Rudi” shouts the other one.

A big girl finds and screams “a lucky cent.”

The currywurst grillwalker with his belly grill waits for clients under his red umbrella that is attached on his back right above the gas bottle. Three girls with red umbrellas ask the vendor to take their picture.
