A first class train trip from Munich to Berlin was a steal at 35 euros and a very pleasant way to travel. (was also a good way to recover from the trauma of being forced to go to my first professional soccer match! Only bad thing about soccer in Germany is that they are allowed to smoke inside and they smoke and drunkenly ash all over you!! We did love the chants and the Bayern Munich songs and it did pass the time because the game is as we all know - dead boring) We left Munich in the rain and arrived to clear skies in berlin. A short taxi trip to embassy land and we were met by Andre in out apartment for the next 4 days - very nice, great spot very happy jan. Happy to be out of bavaria and the stodge food specialities which seemed impossible to avoid -we wandered around looking for somewhere to have dinner and found ourselves in the Lowenbrau - seriously! Nothing is open in Germany on a sunday except place which specialise in stodgy bavarian meals.
Everyone is very happy here because we are winning the olympics! It is the only thing we have on TV that we can follow so lucky it is still on.
Beautiful blue sky day so we did a Sandersons free walking tour of Berlin (funnily enough with a guide from Sydney!) We have done checkpoint charlie, brandenburg gate, the Konzert hall and place, various war places, stood on top of Hitlers Bunker and finished with lunch in Galleries LaFayette (thank god for french food!!)
Have walked 500 miles today and finished with a little shop in HM - everyone made a purchase so everyone happy. Trying to summon up energy to go find dinner - ready for big day tomorrow....stay tuned
