After dropping my bags off at her nice apartment we hit up a bar/restaurant along a river nearby. The beers and weiner schnitzel are a great introduction to Berlin and we catch up on old times.
We meet up with some of her friends at an outdoor café/restaurant and enjoy drinks, conversation, a local clown/funny man, and a few small plates before grabbing some ice cream. We walk through a park and wind up sitting down at yet another outdoor bar where the entertainment finds us. A belly dancer and a stag party with the best costumes ever show up as we enjoy a hookah in the festive park!
The stag party is dressed as the music video from Michael Jackson's "Thriller" as the bachelor is MJ and the rest are zombies, and they went all out. Some of the goblins stop and talk with Jess and I for a while and wind up losing their party as they, along with us, lost track of time. It was a relaxed, yet entertaining introduction to Berlin. I can tell that a majority of the time will be spent outdoors while I'm in Europe and I like it!
