My Berlin journey continued on Monday where Holger went back to his barracks and Hobi and I went to a tennis store in west Berlin. I bought some new shirts and Hobi showed me around Schoeneberg and a nice coffee and cake shop.

Tuesday in the early afternoon we met with Holger in Spandau (I had Gold stuck in my head all day - you're gold! Always believe in yourself - you're indestructible etcetcetc)

We went to an old citadel that was very historic and fascinating. We then proceeded to a brewery where I ordered the bierghoulash which was heavy and delicious. We also had beer liqueor as well as ordinary beer and overall had a beery good time.

Yesterday was a quiet day, With the most interesting part being that I got a haircut. How does my new Berlin style look? :)

I awoke @ 3.45am and made my way to schoenefeld airport thanks to Hobi's directions and sandwiches (thanks Hobi). Landing in Amsterdam, it feels much more foreign than Spain or Germany. The language is strange and cool to listen to, there are bikes everywhere and of course the coffee shops are everpresent. So when in Rome, do as the romans they say so I.... hired a bike for 5 days and rode to where my tournament will take place. Being on a bike is a lot of fun and it's very convenient.

So tomorrow the tournament starts...

I really loved Vondelpark when I was there all those years ago. If you have time a canal cruise is fun everyone seems to get stinking drunk on them....Look out for Soto Ayam if you are getting Indonesian....
