Which one might think means it's just another July 4th since the whole 'our holidays aren't everyone's holidays' thing, but then the skies exploded with celebratory fireworks, which made for a wonderful (wunderbar) surprise.
Exhausting, but fantastic three days. Berlin is incredible! A baroque palace, the Ishtar Gate, Reichstag, Jewish museum, tv tower, Berlin Wall, Döner, etc etc etc. I think I've walked 30 miles, and I can't remember the last time I've been so tired, but words can't describe it. So rather than trying on a keyboard where I don't recognize a good portion of the key positions, I think I'll bedbound it so I'm not dead for the train to Prague tomorrow.
