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.
