Day 6 – Berlin

The bed was a bit too soft in my hotel.  Otherwise, it was restful night of sleep.  I probably still didn’t completely adjust to European timezone and still got up around 5am.  That’s not bad, I ended up watching “Home Improvement” in German.  The character in the show dubbed perfectly well in German =P  (especially Tim Allen)…
