Thanks for the tips! I don't much fancy the suppositories though :?

Sounds like a good plan so far. ;)

visit the Reichstag (the queues are always so long we've not made it before)


I know - they're terrible. You could try to register for a guided tour (http://www.bundestag.de/htdocs_e/visits ... fuehr.html), that way you don't have to queue. The other option would be to steal someone's children, because there's a side entrance for families - I'm afraid bunnies don't count.
If you manage to get up into the cupola this time, I hope you have a fine day, because the view really is great from up there.

My sister used to live in Kreuzberg and whenever I visited I could happily spend a couple of hours looking through interesting little shops there. They also have many many nice little cafes and bars

And have you been here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackesche_H%C3%B6fe Lots of galleries and shops with pretty (and expensive) stuff, but the restored art nouveau buildings are well worth looking at.

Oh, and do go to the natural history museum! I love it and want to live there!!!!* It's partly old fashioned natural history museum (dinosaurs! stuffed animals!! old books!!!) and part supermodern science fun. And it's not too big, so you can see everything in a day. And - again - the building alone makes me squee with excitement:

I mean: isn't that exactly what a NHM should look like?

Sorry for longish off-topic.

*note use of multiple punctuation

That looks amazing. We found the Natural History Museum in London a bit disapointing though. (Having seen "One of our dinosuars is missing" many times we thought the dinosaurs in the main hall would be bigger. And it was very static, no real hands on stuff.
Of all the forces in the universe, the hardest to overcome is the force of habit. Gravity is easy-peasy by comparison.

Cheery the museum looks fabulous! Reminds me of the Field Museum in Chicago - my favorite.

Yes the Field Museum is good Catch up, but we did not have to queue outside because we all had a Chicago Go ticket it let's you bypass the queues and there was just a short one inside. :mrgreen:

He's the only one I could think of. And anyway, his English is so good (and he uses our slang) that I'm convinced he's actually English!!

Flipping heck, everyone here speaks German except me! :lol: I've downloaded a couple of apps, but they're not much good. I'll have to do it the old-fashioned way, and actually work at it :oops:

Take photos on your mobile of various objects that you may need - coffee, wine, toilet, restaurant, rabbit food etc., and then show someone the photo when you need that particular item.

And download a German/English/Mancunian dictionary as an app on your phone. ... And then ask any question, very carefully, only once ... :whistle:
