I am back from Berlin! The city and game were great but the trip was marred by travel complications. Got back last night after 24 hours of travelling and now waiting for the kids to come home from thier weekend at West Bay. Berlin is a clean and interesting city and I found everyone to be friendly and helpful. Being unable to speak German was not a problem and despite my dislike of cities in general I could see myself going back some day. We made good of the extra day we were stuck there by visiting the Brandenburg Gate and surroundings including the Fan Mile. Easy to get around, a little expensive, but the natives are friendly (especially when they win!).
