K: Arrived Berlin this afternoon - 28 degrees. Found our hotel which is in the centre of the Mitte district. Great Hotel, very flash and cheaper than the dodgy one in Prague. Went for a wander and found a fabulous Japanese cafe close by. I immediately feel really comfortable in Berlin - don't quite know why - reminds me a bit of Melbourne so far. It isn't touristy where we are, and it was lovely to sit and watch the Berliners going about their business. Football seems to be following us around, with lots of groups getting rather excited (Who can understand these things).
I have never seen so much beer drinking - people have large beers any time of day. It is not as strong as ours, but still very tasty. Tomorrow we might work out how to upload a photo, but time now to go back to our room. It's the first air conditioning we've experienced all week.
