well i say that cause there is a bear at every corner apparently the city mascot... mmm...amazing place so much history went and visited a concentration camp which was interesting but quite sad to see what they actually went through... and we did a tour and learnt all about the berlin wall and went and checked out checkpoint charlie which was a museum outlining how people got over the wall... of course we tried out few different beers and the world famous kebabs... and well we also took the challenge of another pub crawl again the results were quite funny and i ended up only a little bit lost this time.. but met some lovely people and managed to check out this really awesome squatters bar where people just campout and paint and grafetti this 4 storey building was really cool.. (sorry that the other guys with me didnt get to see it..:P) on our day tour we saw many cool things although i wasnt in the best form.. aka i was *&%$ hungover i still learnt a bit.. haha saw museum island, holocaust museum, tiergarden, topograpghy of terror.. that night we headed out for a meal just near the hostel was a train station and below it there was this like area that was set up sort of islandy with candles and stuff and we ate there pretty cool and then we went back to the hostel and were entertained by one of the guys staying there who was an amazing musician...
