... level and used the bathrooms down there to freshen up, then talked to our boy Timmy at the front desk about the days plans and exchanged Austin Powers and Borat impressions. From there, we took the M5 (which he had drilled into our heads) to Hotbahnhof, the big train station in Berlin, to make our reservations for our first Eurail train ride to Amsterdam at 12:28 AM tonight.

Whilst it was a very difficult hour or so I'm very grateful that I didn't entirely miss the event and it was lovely to be able to see and speak with my family.
