Last week I went into Berlin. Just for Wednesday night to visit a friend who is doing some traveling with his Dad in Europe. I took the train straight from the dinky little two platform train station in Schönebeck to the HUGE, bustling, 5 story open air train station of Berlin. After a couple hours I was there, ready to get see a familiar face and have some dinner. Ben is a friend from Calvin and also the student body president. I will be working with (for) him when I serve on Student Senate this coming academic year.
We walked around for a while before finding a cute little place for dinner. I had fun talking with the man running the place (think: waiter/cook/bar tender/cashier/bus boy) in German, and we all had the infamous German Wiener Schnitzel because it was the special for the day. Going out to eat in Germany is not a quick process. So not surprisingly, after we were done eating and got the bill, it was already time for me to go!
