Andreas’s parents have been here in Berlin for the last week and we spent the weekend walking the streets and exploring the city.  Friday we had a super fancy dinner of currywurst and beer at Curry 36 and showed off some of the city’s landmarks by night.  Saturday we visited Wannsee and the city of Potsdam, where we walked through the enourmous park admiring the three castles housed there.  I have heard the park is gorgeous in the spring when everything is in full bloom, but I actually liked the grey winter day and the bare trees- I found it all very picturesque.  Having house guests gets us to visit some of the tourist attractions which we might otherwise not visit and although I normally despise the usual touristic haunts, I am loving every minute exploring our new home- this city has so much history and I am endlessly fascinated by it.
