A warm night in the “hut palace” but we still has a good sleep. After we’d showered a simple breakfast of croissant, apple and tea of coffee awaited us.

A couple of streets along we found Cafe Valentin and ordered a healthy platter board, chai latte, milky coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. Bliss.

we then headed to a new hotel for the night, over near the Olympiastadion which allowed for a wee trip to Spandau. We headed first to an old pub recommended in oru beer book, but sadly it was closed, perhaps for some time. 🙁

    We loved our visit to Berlin but did start to find the food a bit meat orientated. One night, having decided to pick something veggie, I used my limited German to order KartoffelSuppe. I was very pleased that potato soup actually arrived but in the middle of the plate the restaurant had thoughtfully added a big sausage!
