Berlin!

Sunday, September 25, 2011


Between the airport and The Makeup Show I had a few hours to play tourist in Berlin. My tour was mostly limited to the Mitte area extending to Kreuzberg on my way home. Here is what I saw... 


Brandenburg tour

Reichstag

Then I got lost and came across a memorial and a pretty park...

The Holocaust Memorial 

Guess who I ran into on my stroll down Unter den Linden? My favorite sparkly vampire ;-)

Pictures on a spot where the wall used to be...

Check point Charlie 

Graffiti on the Mercury hotel wall.

Curry 36

According to my copy of the lonely planet, Curry wursts are a must when in Berlin. So as a big fan of junk food I went down to Curry 36 and tried them put for myself. As it turns out, I love them! I like all things curry so this was no surprise.

Not speaking a word of German was almost never an issue, thankfully most Germans (or at least the Germans I met) speak good English too. I did however, go round in circles once trying to get out of a train station because I didn't know what "Exit" was in German. Its "Ausfart" by the way, just in case you were wondering
If like me you are a chocolate sister, prepare to be stared at. I experienced the same thing in Rome, I guess it has something to do with the fact that there aren't that many of us there. Its harmless but if you are overly self conscious this can get uncomfortable. I just pretend I'm a really glamorous celebrity (like Beyoncé) spotted on vacation LOL!

I had a great time in Berlin. Of course the people I was with and the make up show I was there for had a lot to do with it. Berlin is one of the most affordable European cities I have visited so far.



TTFN!
