I finally made it to Berlin yesterday. Today I am trying to work, but I am fighting jet-lag pretty hard. The period right after lunch, where I'm full of food and it's 6am or whatever in Pittsburgh is always the hardest part of my day. I planned that time to read a paper, but that may have been a mistake. I am having to fight very hard to stay awake. 

Lame parts: It's snowing here... and cold. So the weather is actually kind of worse than in Pittsburgh.

Cool parts: I was bumped off my flight and put on a business class ticket one day later. I think that was the first time I've ever flown business class across the ocean, when it actually matters. Definitely nice, but probably not worth ten times the cost of a normal ticket, which is what I believe it normally costs. Also, there are a bunch of cool little restaurants near-by with soups and things, and a bunch of neat coffee kaffee shops too.


  1. Be sure to try to doener kebab while you're in Germany. Distinctly different than gyros, but a superior late night party food. Despite being Turkish food, it actually was invented in Germany by immigrants, I think.

    Also, apfelschorle rules. Trying to mix my own never quite works out right.

    Hmm. Makes me want to go back.

  2. Dude I love Donner Kebab, so don't worry I will have plenty.

    Brianne just told me about afelschorle; sounds great!
