Today after breakfast we headed to the Berliner Dom.  The church is not catholic so we had to pay to get in.  Inside it did resemble church we had seen in the past.  Later we headed to the crypt underneath which had loads of coffins from the royal family of Berlin.  After this we headed to the Pergamon museum which was awesome.  It has lots of stuff from Greece, and Babylon.  Then we found some lunch in the Friedrich Strasse Bahnhof.  Had curry wurst at a good authentic joint.  From here we went to the Humboldt University Museum, which had the worlds largest dinosaur, among other things.  Got some good pictures.

We next visited the Altes Museum which sucked.

  Very small, good thing we got a student discount.

After the museum we walked around Alexanderplatz.  Kinda disappointed, not much to see or do.  Italian squares are much nicer.

Walked back to the hostel, found an amazing place to eat and it was cheap!  Lindy got a pizza and I had pasta with Gorgonzola sauce.

In a bit too early tonight..

Lindy’s Comments

Today was a museum day because it was raining when we woke up.  We headed to Museum Island and decided to go to the Berliner Dom because the museums were not open.  It was an alright Dom, the Dome was cool but that was about it.  After this we went to the Pergamon Museum.  This was the coolest museum we have gone to all trip!  They have the decorations of a Greek temple, the Ishtar Gate from Babylon, and many really big artifacts!  We very much enjoyed ourselves, the audio guide wasn’t very good but was included in the admission price.

  From here we decided to go light and head over to the museum for Nature kind.  This museum was the largest dinosaur on display in the world!  It was huge, there were also several other dinosaurs.  They also had a good exhibit on outer space and earth phenomenon’s but that was about it.  After this we didn’t want to wait for the Altes Museum to become free in the evening so we went there early.  It was pretty much a disappointment.  It took less than an hour and consisted of broken statues, pottery, and the bust of an Egyptian queen from the closed Egyptian museum.  I think they were doing construction so hopefully usually it is better.   After this we wandered over to Alexander Platz.  It was also kind of a disappointment, lots of teenage thugs sitting and drinking with a few shops.  We decided to call it a night early and headed to an Italian Restaurant by our hostel, which was awesome and cheap.
