Derek was not happy to wake up :)

Woke up after a very long night on the train.  For some weird reason our train never made it to the Hofbahnhof and instead we had to catch the S-Bahn into the city.  After we got some donuts at Duncan Donuts, we checked in to the Hostel to drop off our luggage.  We then went to the main square and found our tour.  We spent the next 3 ½ hours on the walking tour of Berlin.  It was a nice introduction to the city and we learned a lot about history.  After the tour we spent the afternoon in the Deutsche Museum where we covered 2000 years of German history.

Later on we checked in to the hostel, did laundry, had drinks and ate.

Lindy’s Comments

Well our night train made it to Berlin.

Berlin!
  It didn’t make it to the Hbf so we were dumped forever away and had to take the S-Bahn into town.  After a breakfast at Dunkin Donuts we made it to our hostel to drop off our luggage and we headed to the Pariser Platz.  We wandered around there, took lots of photos and waited for the free tour we were taking to start.  It finally started and we spent 3.5 hours touring most of the main sties of Berlin, got lots of history and we want to go back to most of those places tomorrow.  After the tour we grabbed a late lunch and went to the Deutschland Historical Museum.  After 2.5 hours there it was closing and we missed the last 50ish years of German History!  I was pretty bummed about that but oh well.  Otherwise the museum was pretty good but sometimes hard to follow the order of it.  We then decided to eat dinner at our hostel and do some much needed laundry.
