We (Kat, Katreina, and I) arrived at Berlin Tegal at 7:10 am and met up with Janet, Sarah, Erin and Teryn a little later. It was then that I realized I had been awake for over 24 hours, and I couldn't help but look forward to getting into a bed at the lodge. Of course, Berlin had other plans.
Everywhere I looked, some fascinating scene grabbed my attention and spiked my curiosity. Despite my exhaustion, I tried to pay as close of attention as I could to Janet as she answered my questions. Once we had ran a couple errands and scene just a hint of the city, we arrived at the lodge.
The lodge is incredible. It's in a fantastic location with dozens of delicious little street food type cafés and loads of neat looking shops. There are tons of people on the streets, mostly young and hipster/punk looking. It's clean, comfortable, and spacious. But, needless to say, I doubt we'll be spending much time in here.
After a couple of us grabbed a short nap, we went to an authentic German restaurant (surprisingly hard to come by in Berlin) and talked about some more of the details of our program. I won't give anything away, as future posts will do a better job than I, but I will say that we are going to be very busy. And honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Until next time,
