Back from Berlin

Domkirche at MidnightI spent my remaining vacation week visiting Jussi in Berlin. Perfect break before the academic year starts. Besides doing lots of shopping in cool arty clothes stores and second hand shops in Prenzlauer Berg and beyond, we had some great meals, and a couple memorable chess matches at Yes. I also got to finally meet Jussi's girlfriend Jing, her lovely friend Sindy, and Jussi's friends Cameron and Amanda from San Francisco. Saturday was the perfect culmination of the trip, with a tourist boatride on the Spree, and Lang Nacht der Museen (Long Night of Museums). All the main museums in the centre are open until 2am and there is a single entrance fee. We even climbed up to the top of the Dom at midnight for some nice views of the city. I've uploaded a few photos onto Flickr.
