Well I woke up today feeling much better, thank goodness.
We took an open bus tour around Berlin today. It was a great way to really see most of the city and kind of get our bearings. It's much larger then Krakow, it's like being back in Paris! We stopped off at Checkpoint Charlie, had sandwiches at a cafe for lunch and toured around somemore. We are a close walk to the Brandenburg Gate and the Holocaust Memorial. We walked down there tonight to take pictures.
Tomorrow we are planning on taking the bus tour to some other places we didn't have time to hit today and we are hoping to go into the Checkpoint Charlie museum. When we went there today the credit card machine wasn't working and they only were accepting cash. Of course we are almost out of cash being on the last rope of our trip and couldn't afford to go in by cash! Lol. Hopefully it's working tomorrow, fingers crossed!
The weather here is very weird. Scotland was really cold and wet, Paris was warm during the day but very cool at night, Poland was just HOT and Germany is just weird. Most people wore tshirts with scarfs and pants today. It's pretty cool and overcast. But then the sun comes out and watch out its so warm, but then the sun disappears and it's cold again. It's hard to know how to dress. I brought so many summer clothes that I haven't even worn yet. From what Salika and Moneet said about Amsterdam, I think it's going to be even cooler when we get there. Makes you appreciate our seasons at home. Sure I'm not a fan of winter, but at least our summers are hot.
I did have a little bit of technical difficulty today which is quite upsetting. I was trying to upload the last day and a halfs worth of photos on my iPad. I was trying for a good hour but for some reason it wasn't working. Somehow the connector deleted my WHOLE entire memory card. I know, should I cry now or later? Thank god I had already uploaded most pictures up to know on my iPad, but I lost everything. Very disappointing since when you go on a trip, all you have left when you get back are your pictures. Needless to say, I'm not trying the adapter again because I don't want to loose anything else. So there will be no more pictures until we get home.
I bought a new pair of birks today. Not that I needed them, I already have 12 pairs of sandals and 3 pairs of clogs. But birks are made in Germany! And because of that they have some awesome awesome colours here! And I only have one pair of the thong ones at home. My moms going to be sooo mad! I clog up the doorway with my shoes and she makes multiple comments of how she doesn't understand why I need so many of the same shoe. My response is they are the most comfortable shoe in the world!
On a side note I'm swearing off all weird, cultural or fried food for the rest of the trip. I don't care if it's an authentic meal in that country. I don't think I'm ever going to eat sausage again! Sausage is evil!! It makes you fat, feel gross and makes me sick to my stomach. I am going on a cleanse the minute I get home, salad and tuna, everyday for lunch and dinner! My body hates me right now and I don't blame it...I feel like a slug.
Off to bed! Til tomorrow!
