Some interesting observations about Europe to begin our day:
1. It seems that all of Europe is under construction.
2. Bike are much more prevalent here. There are bike paths on sidewalks and streets, bikes are often a part if everyday traffic, and public transportation (trains, subways, busses) are very accommodating for bikes.
3. Europe is very dog friendly. They are basically allowed anywhere and welcome in stores, restaurants shops, and train stations/trains.
4. They don't believe in tap water. You only get bottled water. It costs money.

Today, we didn't really know how to best see Berlin. We were unprepared. So... Bus Tour! Simple, easy, cheap, and it will tell us what's important here :)

We stopped for some shopping & food.

Back on the bus and pretty much had our own personal tour guide (since we were the only three on the bus). The guide kept calling us "my sweet ladies".

We ended out tour at the Berlin Wall around sunset. It was very historically beautiful. Words cannot describe it.

Dessert for dinner then back to the hostel to relax before boarding our midnight sleeper train to Amsterdam!
