We got up early in the morning to make the long walk once more with our heavy bags to the train station. Of course once again it was a very unexciting train ride, but we did eat some more of the cheese we bought at the cheese markte, and it was delicious!!
Once we arrived in Berlin it was a few blocks walk to our hostel and for some reason Berlin was HOT! We were absolutely drenched in sweat by the time we arrived; we hadn't felt heat like that since China, weird. We were told we had been upgraded to a 4 bed dorm rather than the 8 bed we had booked. We were ok with this but at the same time not quite sure about it as sharing a room with only 2 other strangers sometimes seems a little more awkward than with 6 other strangers. Our roommates ended up being ok though; it was two other guys each travelling alone and so it was pretty quiet in the room. The room itself though was in a bad spot as for the first half of the day the sun is blaring straight into the three big windows and only the small top portion of one can open; they glued the others shut so needless to say it was like a sauna. Oh, and not even a fan; even in asia they had fans in the room!
We were so far behind in the blog by this time that that evening I (Jackie) just sat and worked on the blog and uploaded pictures. James did a small bit of planning but has become addicted to watching you-tube videos and pretty much just did that.
