While Jackie was working on the computer I figured I'd find a place to get my haircut. I asked at the front desk where the cheapest place would be and his directions turned out to be very bad, I happened to stumble on one as I was on my way back to the hostel. When I walked in the hairdresser was coloring a womans hair and told me to wait. While the woman was washing her hair in the back I got the fastest most painful haircut of my life (Ok maybe thats not quite true since I had my ear cut when I was a kid, ouch). Maybe she was seeing if she could do it before the woman was done washing her hair. It turned out to be cheap so the pain was worth it.

We weren't really sure what we were going to do today but we bought a Ubahn ticket so we figured we should use it. We started our trip by grabbing a donair kebab from the stand outside and after waiting in line for 30 min we realized why you had to wait that long, it was awesome. Jackie didn't like hers so much because of the feta cheese on it, I on the other hand loved it. We jumped on the subway and decided to go back to the Brandenberg Gate to get some better pictures of it. On the way there Jackie spotted a H&M store and 'would die' if she didn't go in (a small exaggeration). So while I waited outside for close to an hour she finally emerged with more clothes to haul around. (But she got GREAT deals and they also looked great on her :))

When we finally arrived at the gate we realized you would have to get there really early for the sun to be on the right side of the gate and the pictures weren't much better than the day before. We had already seen everything we had wanted to see the day before so we just went back to the hostel to try and plan for the next couple weeks.

The next day was also spent on the computer trying to find hostels because its summer and we found that you had to book ahead of time if you wanted to get anything decent. When we say ahead of time we mean about two weeks....we were just booking for that week and so we still had troubles, hence being on the computer the whole day.
