So I am currently in Prague, where the wifi in our hotel is atrocious. I'm behind posting already and it's only been a week!
Berlin is a super cool city. We did a historical walking tour, which was very interesting, led by a "local guide" who was actually Irish. It took about three hours, and we went to the place where Hitler did his big speeches, the book burning site, the Brandenburg gate, Checkpoint Charlie, and the Riechstag, while getting an in depth explanation of the goings-on in each spot. After that I wandered around the city for a few more hours, taking pictures and hitting up Ritters Sport, a place where you can make your own chocolate! I still haven't tried mine though, so I'm not sure if it's actually any good. I got a few other flavours while I was there though, so I have backup chocolate if necessary.
That night I went out with the group to Pirates Bar, and then a club called The Matrix, where I was very reluctantly forced to dance. I bailed and walked back to the hotel at about 1:30am, but everyone else was there until about 5am. Still, I actually went to a club, so I think I should get points for that.
We stopped in Dresden for a bit on the way from Berlin to Prague. I got some lunch and took more pictures of the "old-city" of Dresden, which isn't actually that old, since everything was flattened and rebuilt after WW2. The buildings were all built to look exactly the same though, so they are all quite beautiful.
I have had a full day in Prague already, but since I have arbitrarily decided to stick to the theme I have so far, I can't tell you about that until I get to Munich. So hold on for that.
Lots of hugs to everyone!
