Berlin and beyond

Have been having the usual connection problems but here we go. Stayed in a pension in old East Berlin. Very run down but clean. Did a hop on off bus tour to see the layout then did a bunch of walking. Used the underground a bunch. City is huge, went to checkpoint Chaplin, Brandenburg gate and an excellent park where they have kept a part of the old wall as it was (like an outdoor museum). Ate different ethnic foods every night. Cold and grey, a little rainy.
Before Berlin we spent more time on the romantic road in Germany and spent a day in Rothenberg. Old walled city very medieval. Had a good stay in a small town, a pension with a bar underneath, good German food! Roads are great well signed and most people have a smattering of English. Then off to Prague.
