We arrived in Berlin, Germany at 6ish in the evening. On the ride to the hotel we passed the Brandenburg Gate, a huge Scientology church (always fun), and the hotel MJ hung the baby out of (don’t remember what it was called).
That night Maria helped me try and figure out Western Union stuff since my debit card expired the day before…super awesome situation.
I went to dinner that night with Jen, Courtney, Damira, Eden, and Aliza. We ate at an Italian place that was really good, and then to a lounge called Solar. The bar was at the top of a 12 story building where you could see the entire city lit up. It was a very cool place.
The next day we woke up and took another bus/walking tour. The tour lasted 3 hours and covered tons. The city is beautiful, very clean, and the history is really interesting. We saw Potsdamer Platz, the huge TV tower, Reichstag, Alexanderplatz, Checkpoint Charlie, the Victory Column, and the remains of the Berlin Wall.
After the tour ended we kept on exploring and did some shopping. We spent time exploring Alexanderplatz and a small market there. That evening I had dinner with Angela at an authentic German place called “Der Ulte Fritz.” It was really good! I had some crazy fruit beer (which was green and I have no idea what kind of fruit). We went back to the TV Tower and rode the elevator to the top to see the city before heading in for the night.
