Lori and I had to do laundry so we made plans with Billy and Melissa to meet at the Brandenburg Gate at 2:00. We went to a hostel down the road that we heard could do laundry but then found out that it would take 2 days! So we tried to find a laundromat, which was like 20 minutes away. But we found it and it took longer than expected so I left with Lori's and my backpack and would meet her there and she would bring the laundry back. The only reason she volunteered was because she knew I wouldn't do it..which is true. But I went to meet Billy and Melissa and Lori came a little later. We watched a lot of really cool street dancers and then we went to the Holocaust Memorial again and from there we headed to Checkpoint Charlie, which was really awesome. We saw some parts of the Berlin Wall and where the wall used to be, which was sweet.

Then we went to the Topography of Terror, which was really interesting as well. After that we took the bus to an old church that was destroyed in WWII but the stained glass was rebuilt as another building..if someone could tell me what its actually called that'd be sweet.

We then went back to our hostel and decided to go out for a nice dinner. We went to a pretty fancy restaurant by our hostel that was soo good. We ordered appetizers and fancy drinks that were really good. The waiter forgot what I ordered so I got a chicken wok on the fly.. We took Billy and Melissa back to the interesting bar we went to the night before. Then we found another random bar where we met a crazy German kid and some Dutch guys. From there we wanted to see the Brandenburg Gate at night as well as the Holocaust Memorial, so we went there, which was really cool. We got back to our hostel at 3am I believe and were heading for Amsterdam the next morning!
