After a beautiful day of walking ALL OVER Berlin, up and down the Unter den Linden, over the river and back again, we went back to our sweet campground for a picnic. It was cloudy, but not raining. Then, in the middle of the night, the thunderstorm struck and lasted for almost two hours
The next day as we were leaving, it was sunny and cool, and we left just in time before a very large transgender group from Belgium moved in and set up their "camp." What a shitshow.
(S) Did he mention it was raining? I mean RAINING! I have heard and seen downpours, hail, thunder, and lightning, but this one takes the German Kuchen. I was convinced we were in the middle of some sort of Berlin air raid. I was terrified. I am going to go out on a limb and say it was probably amplified in our 1 1/2 person tent, but it was LOUD. It did feel like we were sleeping on a water bed, which was pretty sketchy.
But, as Chad said, Berlin is an amazing city. There was just so much to see. The remnants of the Wall are disturbing, as are the remains of the Nazi regime. However, the people have rebuilt the city into one of the most advanced and beautiful in Europe.
