last night we made love to berlin...and she was wonderful

ahh IS techno. after a 5 hour train ride and some seat hopping we arrived at our
hostel. we have had some fine wines, some delicious beers and german hotdogs. we awoke this morning to the arrival of our new hostel mates- much to our embarrassment Anna had decided to sleep sans top- what a treat for our new friends. after our akward encounter with our new buds... are they french? are they dutch? we don't know for they won't speak to us. we decided to venture out aand try and do some laundry...navigating around and understanding the ins and outs of a german laundromat is quite a challenge, but no worries we pulled through and now have plenty of clean undies. it was raining for most of the day and we were feeling a bit bleak, but we decided to go on a free walking tour of berlin and it was GREAT for both the legs, buns and mind. Our tour guide, Andrew was fantastic and gave a tear jerking speech about the fall of the berlin wall. good times for sure. he also gave us a great suggestion on some local fare. we feasted on delicious rich german food and local brew. we topped off our night with a glass of reisling at the hackescher markt. we are pretty wiped after a full day of seeing the sights of berlin, jaclyn is putting away her glow sticks for the night. here are some of our favorite berlin highlights so far:

1. the U-bahn and S- bahn
2. Andrew our tour guide
3. the much under appreciated art of graffitti on everything
4. open mic nights at hostel bars
5. german hair styles

we would also like to give mad props to our fellow sister soldier LIZ- your undying devotion to our journey is much appreciated, without you we never would have started this trip...

peace out.

Ladies, Thanks for the shout out! For your trip to Germany I have devised a vocab "scavenger hunt" if you will. Please approach complete strangers to find out the meaning of the following popular slang words:
Kennsch de Wayne?

Anna und Jaclyn est der Busengrapscher!!

bet you didnt know I took german 1 & 2 in highschool - but then again, this isnt really the lingo they teach in school. I'm seriuos ladies write down the words and have them translated by handsome german gents. ich liebe dich. xo
