Reichtstag...
Last night we went to East Berlin to have dinner and to tramp around some of the bars. We ended up in a bar called Greif - full of young skins. We didn't leave until gone 5am. Not that I misbehaved you understand - I was playing Addams Family pinball most of the night! We got up fairly early today to visit the glass dome on top of the Reichtstag. Norman Foster's marvel of glass, steel and mirrors. Really very impressive - if not quite worth the 75min wait in the freezing cold. To warm ouselves up we settled down in Steam sauna for a few hours and then had a bite to eat. Being too exhausted to go to the club GMF tonight I've now retired early. We've got to checkout by 10am tomorrow and I need by beauty sleep.
