Rainy Day in Berlin
No problems getting from Warsaw to Berlin. Arrived in the Ostbahnhoff, picked up my seven-day metro card and got to the hotel. Unfortunately, the hotel doesn't open back up its reception until 4 pm, and my friend Bruce, who was supposed to meet me, is off somewhere touring the city. Luckily, the maid let me drop my stuff off in the room, so I don't have to schlep that around while I'm waiting.
In the meantime, I'm staying out of the rain by checking my e-mail and then the news to see if George Bush and shredded any more of the constitution since yesterday. I'm betting the answer is yes.
If I ever find Bruce, we'll head out to Unter den Linden and see whether to go to the symphony or see Mozart's "Abduction From the Seraglio" tonight (I'm leaning towards the latter, but it will depend on whether any tickets are still available).
