... though we had taken ourselves to the Brandenburg Gates and the Berlin Wall previously, Michael our guide (who is a dead ringer for Basel Faulty) explained their significance which made a great impression.

Simon's place is very nice and he had done well setting himself up. The location is a very pleasant and vibrant area with lots if young families. Simon referred to the area as being very trendy and "yuppie". Lots if ...
