This week Carlos and I visited Berlin. Spite being in Germany several times, I hadn’t really been to the capital before. Anyway, now I had a great reason to go since a friend of mine, Noora, has been living there the summer. Was nice to see someone from Finland for a change, though it also reminded me about the fact, that soon I ought to be heading home..
Well, but about Berlin. It’s huge, a bit too huge for me. The distances are so great when you want to travel from the other side of the city to another. Luckily Noora knows it all so well, so she could take us a bit further than to the closest tourist sights. So, we visited the Berlin Wall Memorial.
Was good to see this place, since the Wall has been such a dominant building in Berlin’s history. Funny to think it’s been down for only 20 years, yet it stood almost three decades. Now wonder it’s still so fresh in the memories of many Germans.
We had a nice meal of Egyptian food, and also enjoyed a lovely cup of coffee in a little roastery. Being tourists, Carlos and I also took a look at the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag Parliament building on our way back to the station. Time just flew by, and there still remains many things to be discovered in Berlin. Maybe again on a sunnier day.
Here are a few more pics:
On the other day Carlos gave me a hint of making hotdogs. And so I did. They were supper-yummy! I made so-called English style hotdogs, and therefore toasted the bread on the pan. Worked magic, have to post the recipe here too, after testing it a few times.
Ps. Sis, now I’ve had a Dunkin’ Donut, too!
