A Berlin Institution

Should I have been working on my project and other pressing matters this evening? Heck yeah! But was I? Heck nein!

Instead, I met up with part of the Berlin BUKA gang, played a bit of ping pong and then visited the Prater beer garden for the first time. Prater is an institution—at almost 170 years old, it is Berlin’s oldest beer garden. The relaxed atmosphere was great. People chatted, enjoyed beers and wurst and children played on the giant swing (this part of the city has the highest birthrate in Berlin...we think Germany and maybe even Europe—there are little ones EVERYWHERE!)

Here are some picts!

Nicolai explains why lots of Russians are named Sergei. Everyone is fascinated:-)
