On this first day of the fair, they still hope to get an appointment for one of the interview slots on the next few days. Europe brings its well-educated children back.

With a longing

Overview

It is probably the television tower and the be Berlin logo, which on the oversized billboard on the Berlin stand gleam partners, who act as a signal for the passers-by. Because they stop. Often with a yearning look.
