Kleine Abenteuer in Berlin (Small Adventures in Berlin) part one

Hallo, and thank you for reading. This will be a two-parter, maybe a three-parter, only because I have so many pictures to share. My phone yelled at me this morning about having very little space, so, I did the right thing and continued to take pictures of my neighborhood (that I just moved into recently) for a later entry, without deleting anything.

Anyway, a day after my arrival, we were taken on a boat tour through Berlin, on the river Spree. This was a particularly interesting experience for me, as the last time I had been on a boat (and the only time I’d been on a boat until last Friday) it had shaken me so badly I’d swore never to get on another watercraft of any sort, ever again. So, understandably, I was a little nervous — but, ultimately, I got on the boat, and had the experience of a lifetime.

Berlin is a beautiful city, a curious mix of old and new, and like our tour guide Rose (who was both witty and charming) explained, it is ever-changing.

During the tour, we were told a lot about Berlin’s rather tumultuous history (which we also learned a little about in school). Overall, it’s definitely a highlight of my first few days in Berlin. After the tour, I went to eat with one of the other program participants at the Boulevard Friedrichstraße.

Mmm, sehr lecker (German for, “very delicious”)!

Bis später,

      The dish shown in this post is called the “Farmer.” It’s two pork steaks covered in gravy and “onion rings” (I ordered this mostly because of the promise of onion rings, needless to say I was mislead). It was really good! And also a lot of food, I couldn’t finish it.

      The boat didn’t really rock, thank goodness!
