Riding in style!!!!
We met an Australian in the Swiss Alps. We were discussing our travels and he commented on Berlin. He said that he had traveled all over the Alps, in some of the harshest weather imaginable, and he had never been colder than when he visited Berlin. Now I understand.
We head to the New Synagogue for Laurie to check out. It is the oldest surviving synagogue in Germany.......or as she finds out later, what's left of it. While Laurie is in the Synagogue, I go wandering as I am apt to do. It is rabidly cold and actually snowed for a few minutes. I go scarf buying....and trust me, I ain't a scarf kind of guy. It was cold!
I meet Laurie as she exits and we head for the Spy Museum. All of the museums we have seen while in Berlin have been 6 or 8 euros. The spy museum was 18 euros. We figured we would check it out....and see if it was worth the extra money.
Being a student of history and technology has its drawbacks. While many of the things in the spy museum were cool, I was familiar with most of them. I really didn't see anything that I haven't seen before. The museum was more for the layman. Whether it was worth 18 euros...that can be the next guy's call. Personally, I didn't think so.
We swing back, transfer the laundry to the dryer, go next door for more great European coffee and when we're finished we grab the laundry and head home. We're gonna try and sleep late in preparation for tomorrow night's show.

I'm Bill. My wife Laurie and I love to travel and share our stories. We especially love it when we have been able to motivate our readers to start traveling on their own, and making their own stories.
