Since we got back so late we got a bit of a late start and didn't leave the hostel till like 2pm. We had pizza at this little stand where we met a bunch of Canadian guys, got a picture with them for some reason and never saw them again. It was wierd. Then we kept heading towards the Brandenburg Gate which was really cool. We paid for pictures with the Berlin Bear. Then we headed over to the Reichstag. We listened to some Dane Cook as we waited in line. It was free, so that was sweet. We went to the dome and walked around and read the history of the Reichstag, its so amazing being somewhere that you learned about and read about in school and then actually seeing it infront of you! After that we walked to the Holocaust Monument, which is amazing as well. Berlin is such an interesting city.
Then we went to the grocery store and bought a bunch of real food; bread, rice, and noodles. We made that food for ourselves and waited at our hostel because Billy and Melissa were meeting us there! But they got held up in Amsterdam, the train station locked their stuff in and wouldn't let them have it back. But they got there at midnightish and we hung out with them for a while before going to bed. It was a pretty good day.
