Dimitri Nikolaev Grigorov poses for a picture in his cafe in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin
Dimitri Nikolaev Grigorov of Spain poses for a picture in his cafe in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin, January 7, 2013. They find the language difficult and the locals as chilly as the weather but for young Southern Europeans Berlin has become a popular spot to sit out the economic crisis at home. Arrivals in Germany from Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal nearly doubled last year. Grigorov lost his job in Barcelona with the end of the Spanish building boom and came to Berlin in 2008. He started off washing dishes and cleaning floors in a cocktail bar, before pushing his way into the coffee business. Today he is fluent in German and runs his own bar, Cafe Colectivo, in the trendy Friedrichshain district. "Lots of people come asking me and for advice, sometimes I get cross. When they ask if I know someone who can give them work washing dishes then I try to help, but there are others who the first they ask is "How can i sign on for social welfare?" and those people I don't help. That's not right. When you leave you have to get your hands dirty or you should just stay at home," he said. Picture taken January 7, 2013.
