K+K Travel Adventures
We made it too Berlin!!! Yay! Our first night was spent with our tour guide and group at a local beergarden for some Berliner Waisse (rasberry flavored beer). We got to meet some locals and get to know the group better---I was honestly ready to go to bed because my average four hours of sleep is taking its toll on me.....errr. However, our guide had mentioned that there was a club called Kaffe Berger that was known for its obscure seventies music and eclectic commmunist group..... So of course I had to investigate. What I found was an array of beautiful germans and great american music--which by the way is ten times better the europop. Anyways, we danced (and drank) the night away....occasionally being cut off by a crazy sweaty german who danced somewhat like a chicken with a broken leg...... Alas, after our taxi ride home we slept for three hours only to be awakened for our historical walking tour of the third reich and naziism in germany.......Berlin willl definatley have to be revisited because I think I learned maybe a tenth of all the things there are to know about WWII. After our tour we strolled down unter den linden street and made our way to the brandenberg gates, checkpoint charlie, babel platz, and of course a little shopping center.....i scored a pair of jeans for 12 euro at H and M along with a necklace, purse, and shirt for each less than 5 euros.....amazing!!!! We headed back to the coach but of course not with stopping for some ice cream and a photo with karl marx and engels....... We primped for our contiki nightlife tour of berlin (aka pub crawl through berlin) We made our way through three bars, all of which had their perks, and finally ended in a club fulll of hot sweaty people.......unfortunately, the music was bad, I was not in the mood to drink and not yet ready to leave for prague in the morning...... making the decision I left for home with some groupies hoping to get sleep but instead was awakened by loud party goers including my cousin who showed up at 4:30 in the morning. alas, aufweidersein berlin and welcome prague!!!
