Pork! 12 hour cooked pork! And chips cooked in goose fat. And German Riesling. A good start to this food holiday.
A massive park in the city.
Monsieur Vuong! Knock back a good pho at a good price. We had noodles and cocktails though - just the right kind of food for hot weather.
Lots of cafes on this street. Cafe Fleury is particularly good.
There was one wacky room that had walls decorated with Chinese teacups and saucers. As in, completely covered with them, including sculptures of Chinese men with saucers and bowls for hats. It cost €3 to take photographs of it though.
More great food in Berlin. Tagliatelle with figs, fennel salami, pine nuts, rosemary and poppy seeds.
I feel bad that I forgot to tip the masseuse because it was really good. Getting to this place was a bit different because I had to go through a dodgy looking car park, climb some stairs into what looked like a dirty storage facility, then knock on a door and suddenly I was in a Turkish day spa. Once inside, it was very nice.
I think I'm finally getting the hang of German names.
You're right, Starbucks. It's not about the coffee. It's about the free wifi, the bathroom and the air conditioning. As much as I dislike the coffee, Starbucks remains the traveller's oasis.
