I’m finally in Berlin and it is amazing. I think that the city is very trendy and is extremely historic. Checkpoint Charlie is very close to where we are staying and is an interesting tourist attraction now.
Last night I arrived in Berlin and went straight to a Christmas market, but not the one with the terrorist attack. I only found out about the attack when we returned to the hotel room and watched German Television. For dinner I ate a bratwurst, a crepe and a bit of KFC to finish it off! The Christmas market was very festive and had wonderful stalls.
On the second day (20th December) I traveled on a hop -on and hop -off bus around the city, it was very educational. We got off and on nearly at every stop until I became very hungry: we got off at a massive shopping centre. Across the road, there was another big market. For lunch I ate a delicious chicken wrap. Street food is really cool in
Berlin and you know what you are getting. On our way back we saw the German Parliament building ( called some silly name that begins with the letter R): it had a huge glass roof. After that we saw a part of the Berlin wall which had a trendy design on it. The bus had unbelievably cheesy music that in a way was catchy. When we got off the bus for the final time we walked to our hotel, sat down and ate crisps. I’m going to relax for a bit before we go out again.
Did I say, its really cold here as well!
