Blogging from Berlin...

Well, the Fjord Hotel has wi-fi so I'm takin the opportunity to post a little of what we are doing here.

We got to the hotel just fine (I hate to obsess on the Garmin, but it really does make all the difference). The Fjord Hotel is just what we were looking for – clean, cheap and near the underground and at least some attractions. We got an internet special when booking the room so it ended up at about $110 per night for a “family” room. That just means a king size bed along with a sofabed. Parking is also included in the rate, which saves about 10-15 Euros per day as most other hotels charge for parking. They don’t have a restaurant but they do have a room and terrace on the top floor where they serve a buffet breakfast,t which costs 10 Euro per person. We did that on Sunday morning because the weather was gorgeous and it was great to relax and have breakfast with a view.




The Sony Center and all of Potsdamer Platz were impressive. It’s only a 10 minute walk from the hotel and there is lots to do there (Imax theatre, mall, restaurants, etc.). Another 5 minute walk takes you to the Holocaust memorial. It, too, was very impressive. Just a bit further up is the Brandenburg Gate and then the Reichstag. I hope to post on the Reichstag tomorrow, but here are Kathy and Noah at Sony Center at Potsdamer Plaz.
