Hallo alex here: Saddly we didnt make it to Czech:( It would have cost 250 Euro with trains and accommodation only for one day sightseeing, so its on the agenda next time for sure. We are currently in a student flat of Silvias 20yr old brother Andres, in Frankfurt. Andres is super lovely, and after spending a yr in texas, speaks awesome english. (Its cool, because hes not particulary enchanted with America, gives him and Ez lots of common ground).
Spent the last 2 evenings drinking Becks and having no bed. But sleeping on the floor isnt too bad ...
Frankfrut seems sofar way more commercial than Berlin, it has enormous storied buildings and loads of neon lights and not much old city charm, also diverse people of every race live here..V. cosmopoliton
Wer'e both just starting to freak out about leaving 'secure' Germany and going to thailand...but i think all the hasseling in Turkey would have prepaired us to deal with culture shock
haha plans until the 16th, when we fly out: eat a frankfurter! I also just want to spend about aweek in Bangkok then go to a random beach down south to just camp for 3 weeks, doing
For the rest of our time in Berlin we went up the new government building(cool view), the charlie checkpoint museum (SO AMAZING learnt so much about the berlin wall and the lenghts people went to to escape) and also to the Grunwald forest, which was BEAU-TI-FUL. THats it from me im going to bed and handing the writing to a awesome ez.-lex
