My day so far has just started, but yesterday was great.
I woke up just a little while ago... and didn't know where I was. For some reason it's always like that when I'm in Berlin.
Had a really long day yesterday. Had to get up just after midnight and then take the bus at 2 am to Stockholm, got to Stockholm at 6.30 am and came to Berlin around lunchtime. My hotel room was not ready so spent some time in town instead of sleeping like I had planned to.
It's so great to be back!
I love just being in teh different parts of town, walking down all the familiar streets and stuff. I had lunch at Barcomis, one of my favourite places, then when I walked home there was a gypsy band performing Gogol Bordello songs. They were really good!
Went back to the hotel, unpacked and then went for a massage from the guy I usually go to when I'm in Berlin. He welcomed me back and talked to me for a while. went out again in the evening. Went to a bookshop that is open until midnight and then first to a café in Prenzluer Berg and then a pub. People were watching football everywhere. Some just put up a TV on a box out in the street and then sat on some other boxes and watched the game together.
Walked home in the middle of the night/early morning and there was still so much life going on here and there. Much unlike the very dead country I live in...
When I got back to the hotel my freind was working so we talked for a while.
It's great that some people in town reconise me when I come here. It's getting harder and harder to leave every time.
Today it's raining a bit and I haven't decided what I'm doing until I'm going out tonight.
