The pub crawl last night was crazyyy.  Pub crawl is just what it sounds: a big group of people congregating and bar-hopping.  The drinks are limitless, the people wild and worldly.  The Scottish girls from last night were there, and so were the Canadians from Prague.  It was just one giant party.  After about 6 hours of nonstop drinking, I found myself vomiting in a cab back to the hostel.  Oops.  It was my last big night out in Europe, so it's perfectly acceptable.

After checking out, Hawaiian Dana and I set off to the main train station, where we met Cam and Dave, two Australian guys I met in Prague then again in Berlin.  They are all going to Amsterdam, and I am senselessly jealous.  They tell me not to be since I have already been there and I am heading to the wonderful world of... home!  Tis true.

Taking an overnight train to the airport is an option, but I decide on a regular day train.  It cost me like 50 USD more, including the accommodation.  It's alright though.  I just need to rest before catching my flight.  The ICE train is ridiculously clean, comfortable and spacious; I feel like I am on an airplane.  I even get wireless internet on the train!  The gloomy and rainy sky, however, dampens my mood, and I somehow end up getting off at a wrong station twice.  Thanks to the honor system in Europe, I hop back on another train without buying a ticket and safely arrive in Frankfurt.  Frankfurt seems to be a financial district with sleek skyscrapers.  The people in Frankfurt seems to be either in suits or dumps... this is kind of what I imagined Berlin to be like: silver, futuristic, inhuman.  I check into a hostel which is literally across from the train station.  I plan to snuggle in the bed and read The Jane Austen Book Club, a random book I picked off the shelf.  But an American guy walks in, and of course, being the chatterbox that I am, I find out that he has graduated from University of Michigan (yay Big 10!) and has worked in Germany for 6 months.  His English is so American and euphonious.  We go out to celebrate his taking of GMAT.  And I have to wake up at 6:30am to catch the flight to... HOME!!!!!
