|Wittenbergplatz U-Bahn Station|
Today's Goal: a bit of Christmas shopping on Kurfürstendamm, the big shopping avenue of West Berlin. We got off at Wittenbergplatz and first hit up the KaDeWe. Needed coffee already.
Back in Kreuzberg, we joined up with friends at a Korean restaurant for dinner (called Madang, excellent), and then walked to a bar near the canal afterwards, called the Hotel Bar. The whole place was lit with candlelight, there were huge bouquets of fresh lilies all over, and there was live piano music. It was small and cozy, and although we didn't get a table right away, it was worth the wait. We made Elisabeth practice her German ordering more beers, and a candle ("Die Kerze ist kaputt..."). Another great day in the life!
