Greetings from Vienna!

Finally I have a bit of time to update this ole' blog... Unfortunately I can't get the photo part of blogger to work at the moment...I'm currently sitting in a Starbucks in the center of Vienna. I've been back in my hometown since last Friday afternoon. Needless to say I've had a great time hanging out with friends and family here.

I just realized I never really covered what all I did in Berlin. Here are a few highlights:
  • On my first day there, last Tuesday, I checked out the famous Zoo. Pretty impressive the amount of species and animals represented. The weather was gorgeous...
  • I actually checked out a live show in Berlin. OK Go and Motion City Soundtrack. Very funny to see 2 Midwestern bands in Germany. Had a great time at the show and met a nice British girl who kept me company.
  • I did a lot of sightseeing. Be it by bus, boat, or on foot... I saw a lot of the city. In the 3 days I was there I took about 800 photos... Now you know why I'm totally behind posting them to Flickr...
  • Some people go to Museums. I go to Football (soccer) games. On my final day I ran into some Danish soccer hooligans who were in town for a UEFA cup game against the team from Berlin. On a whim I decided to go to the Olympia Stadium to check out the match. OMG, what a great time. Also, it was amazing to see the place where the infamous Zidane headbutt incident occured during the World Cup final.
OK, that's the extremely short version of everything that occured. More to come, including pictures, when I have some extra time. Hope all is well in the US!

Miss ya,
- Steve

Steve- So jealous you saw MCS. Did you say "hi" to my friend Justin? j/k They're constantly on tour. I checked out some live music in London: Touriste, Andrew Balkwill and the Wombats. Great show!

Hey, Homeboy, what's up? YOU are a soccer hooligan! Glad to know you are doing well and having fun. Yeah, those dogs are fine, which is to say as crazy as ever. In fact, they are wrestling and snarling at the moment (1am). I thought about you being in Germany the other day when I bought a Tiefschwarz mix, and here you're listening to midwestern indie-rock. Anyway, get those photos posted. Everybody misses you. Take care.
