Ich hasse die Kälte, aber ich liebe Berlin
Finally got to do some proper sightseeing this afternoon. Stopped by Checkpoint Charlie and the Checkpoint Charlie Museum. Then went by the last remaining part of the Berlin Wall and the exhibition there about the Nazis and Soviet occupation.
Next was Potsdammer Plaztz and the Sony Centre. From there I went up to Brandenburger Tor and the Riechstag. It's all pretty amazing stuff.

I've enjoyed the food over the past four days, and, of course, the beer. Unfortunately, where I'm staying is an area where most of the restaurants are targeted at business people. Hence, also, the large number of fancy hotels. The best meals, though, were at what seemed to be local establishments that are not targeting tourist/business clientele. Weiner Schnitzel last night; Jager Schnitzel tonight. I still need to have some good sausage. Maybe for lunch tomorrow.

Lots of beer has been consumed. Mostly pilsners, and some dunkels, and weissbier. I had a good Reisling with the Pike Perch that I had for dinner on Wednesday.

One more day of wandering around and then back on Sunday. I'm going to miss all the important sporting events and the Super Bowel. I mean Super Bowl.

Damn, it's just about 1:30am. That's okay, I need to stay awake so that I can get back into EST when I get back.
