Currywurst
Lots of people have raved about this to me, but that's not what I pictured at all...I don't think I ever seen curry powder used as a garnish before :) Now I really want a chiko roll for lunch :)

Currywurst
I wouldn't be rushing over to Berlin for this. It is basically rolled sausage meat and the curry powder sort of saves it. The currybratwurst which was using a proper sausage was better but still nothing special. We thought that maybe we just chose the wrong places to have them, but after having two we didn't really want to keep getting them on the hope of something special, but we are thinking that maybe we should carry curry powder with us so if we get another bad meal or we need to do to make it better is sprinkle some curry on it.

I love this!

Art work
The art work on the wall was pretty good, it was just a shame that they had it fenced of to protect it and where they didn't it was tagged badly. It sort of looks like that the artists keep coming back to fix them. We had hoped to see a couple more art museums but just ran out of steam.

Neues Museum

Never enough
We know you can't get enough of these museums! A beer or two might be at the finish line. Rich in history-- sad and yet we must understand. Sounds like you are enjoying your time in Germany.

Never enough
German museums are sensational, but as you know too many and you just end up with sensory overload. Been waiting a long time to get to Berlin and it didn't disappoint.

Fabulous visit!
I love Berlin--so vibrant, and you two did right by it--so much art and history in those museums and the Eastside Gallery. Love your images of the photogenic Reichstag! And glad Scott got to visit his own museum with all the cars and vehicles--somehow in my two weeks there, I missed that one as well as the currywhurst--hmm.

Fabulous visit!
Don't panic, you really didn't miss much with the Currywhurst. I think Berlin might be our number one city, although that always changes.
