Cool man. Good luck with it. MarkVI will most likely be stopping by.
Horror Business
Good luck, that sounds like an exciting move. You moved for your job, right?
lisalisa
That does sound exciting. Do you have any friends there or coworkers coming along?

When you get there, make the trip to Laboe, Germany (near Kiel) and visit U-995 (a Type VII U-Boat).

I'm so new I can't really say what its like. I've been in California so long I am a weather wimp so the cool air is tough to deal with right now. the people are ....... different? lots of Berliners look, how shall I say this? unhappy? grim? like they crapped their pants? something in the national psyche I recon. I know people look at my goofy, smiling mug and think 'what the fuck??' they are pretty cool once you get them talking though. some really nice parts to see and like all cities some utter crap (Alexander Platz is not my cup of tea) I desperately need a flat so the stress of that is making me nuts but I know once I'm set up I'll be alot more content.

the men are hideous and the women ungodly beautiful.

You're on! Seems like a perfect opportunity to ask the other Berliners here for advice - Mark VI? Others?
Where should we be going to eat and drink? I'd like a nice place to take another couple for dinner in the city. We'd also like to catch up on as much of the contemporary art galleries / spaces / museums as possible (which may be tough with things closing up for the holidays).
I think we're staying near the Wintermarkt am Schlo

oops - am Schloss Charlottenburg

Do they need civil engineers there? Hook a brother up with a job!

I work right by the Westend U Bahn station in Charlottenberg. I'll be staying in Prenzluaer berg (north) by then I hope. but Kreuzberg is the party spot.

From WikiTravel Berlin
Boxhagenerkiez The area around Boxhagenerplatz is filled with bars, cafes and small shops. Boxhagenerplatz itself is a small park with a playground and a cafe, and the nearby Simon Dach Strasse is filled with cheap bars and restaurants. At the weekend you can find many places that serve the famous, cheap Berliner brunch. On Sundays there is a small flea market worth strolling around.

Sounds cool! I haven't been to Berlin since the wall came down, so it is a completely new city for me. Zack, you must be having quite a time exploring. Please feel free to send some advice my way and I'll get in touch closer to NYE. Advice on a really nice place for dinner would be greatly appreciated. I've heard that the restaurant at the Reichstag is good, but I'd prefer intimate if possible.

Oh, and Germans are a dour lot - until you drink with them. Then you'll have friends for life. beer.gif

berliners have a very dark humor. from the war and the cold war. i believe it is just passed down at this point, from father to son.

my favorite city in the world. be ready for a really dark winter. it will get pitch black at about 4:30 or as it is for you now 16:30. the city is amazing in the summer. the sun will be out past 22:00.

in december there will be a huge christmas carnival on unter de linden. it is beautiful. really. the biggest indoor tree i have ever seen is in KaDeWe.

oh, and a big 'hell ya!' on the women there.

Yeah, but I bet you forgot the part about walking into work the first day and screaming 'You are all eunuchs! WITH CUNTS FOR EYES!!!'
