Another night train, and we are in Berlin! We arrived at our hotel on Kurfürstenstraße early this morning to drop our bags, and were happy to discover that they were already ready for us to check in. Most of the big things we want to see here are located closer to the central train station, where we’ll be leaving from tomorrow night, so today we stayed around the hotel. Lunch: tagliatelle at the nearby Mövenpick restaurant
Exploration: the Berlin Zoo, oldest and largest in Germany.
Dinner: Thai curry at a Vietnamese restaurant, then zabaglione for dessert at an Italian restaurant down the block.
Tomorrow: the history of Berlin, then off to Paris, friends Rip and Daniel join the party, and a concert in Nantes.
