We made it to Berlin, which is gorgeous. Very cool city; makes me wish I knew more about architecture. The Fan Fest thing here is gigantic. It’s connected to the Brandenburg Gate and stretches for at least a kilometer into the Tiergarten. Very very cool.
Had some snafus finding our hotel last night. Apparently it had been torn down. THANK YOU VERY MUCH Fodor’s 2006. I think someone’s getting an indignant letter.
Checked out the sites and whatnot. The Jewish museum is pretty impressive, though we could have done with 12 percent less of wall placards telling us what Daniel Liebskind wanted us to feel.
Things are calm here today, but we expect fireworks tomorrow, since Germany is playing Ecuador in town.
