Berlin 7-21-13

We arrived in Berlin at approx 1pm. We found our hotel, a Holiday Inn Express can you believe it! We dropped our luggage and headed for the sights of Berlin. We went to the Brandenburg Gate and Unter den Linden Blvd. See pics. Around the corner is the Bundestag with the glass dome. We had make reservations to go up in the dome so we waited an hour to make them. The Dome is closing tomorrow for several days for cleaning so today was the only day we would be able to see it. Our reservations were for 9:30pm but we were lucky to get them as there was only a few places left.
Marsha had called friends of hers and arranged to meet them at a local biergarten. These people are American citizens who have lived and worked in Berlin for about 20 years and they love it. James said Berlin is becoming very cosmopolitan and is rapidly becoming the Silicon Valley of Europe. We had dinner at the biergarten – see pics- self explanatory food and all was delicious. Marsha’s friends are great! They were warm and friendly and we had a great time until we had to leave to tour the Bundestag. There are many picture from the dome and of the dome. It was really an unusual experience.
