My friend Jessica arrived this evening, and we first headed downtown in search of the last of the Christmas markets. Most of them end tonight (Second Christmas Day), but some stay open through New Year's. We got to enjoy some of the Christmas lights of Mitte and Friedrichstraße, as well as the beautiful interior of the Hotel Adlon with its giant gingerbread house. At the Gendarmenmarkt Weihnachtsmarkt we had a Glühwein (my last of the season, I must admit...) and enjoyed the choir in front of the Konzerthaus. It was really warm this evening, and pleasant to walk around. Lots of people downtown at the market.
