This morning I'm awake before Greg! I awake him with the joy that he doesn't want to get up. We get changed and head downstairs to get some breakfast on the street as usual. We leave our bags at reception and get ready for a another stunningly sunny warm day out. Gaz advises us he is cold!

We go the underground ticket machine where we have a play with it again and then await a train.

What do you think it is nack?

Les its the Sony Slut Center and as I pointed out to you yesterday evening if you want to see it lite up like the one in Las Vagus you have to come when its dark. Oh.

Nice glass buildings though.

How about we find the other bit of the Berlin Wall thats still up then.

Les this isn't it for goods sake. Your lost mate I'm telling you in my hung over state.

We trun around walk back on ourselves and low and behold here it is to touch.

Nack the bums have nicked the outer surface here too.

Nack what is it. It two bells from the church they knocked down to build the wall.

Look I can take no more walking.

Me neither, I'm shagged.

Your both a bunch of wusses.

Bollocks to you Les we're off to get a taxi.

Probably the most interesting place I've been all weekend.

The Extension of the Berlin Wall Memorial.

I've been one otherplace a lot more sobbering than this.

I guess this is like the giants causeway. ie it used to be giant then the tourists all took a little bit home and hey there's not a lot left.

Shall we get a train back to the center then?

I like train journeys.

Gaz don't tell me, I know your cold.

We sit next to the river I get a post card and write it to Deadmanjones. What I didn't realise is I put the wrong house number on it. Anyway the waitress comes and serves us. The other all order soft drinks. For some reason I ask if they do milk shakes as I'm dying for one. She advises they don't and asks what I would like instead. Flumusked by not knowing I say the usual answer of larger. Is that a large one shes asks - yes of course ;).

Erm something / someone smells around here.

Well its time to head back to the Roas Luxemburge Platz area for the coach home.

We pop into the Mekerisk bar and I have one last cocktail and some nacho's to go with it.

An hour latter and we are at the airport awaiting the plane.

We do a bit of shopping and I have a burger king. This is a big caloire weekend this is.

On the plane all I want to do is get off. Off off off.

I could do with a window opening. Ah I feel chlostrophobic and I'm sure the yellow interor is not helping.......

Saturday morning I'm woken up. Its about 1:15pm. I have a bloomin quick shower in the dark as the lights don't work in the bathroom anymore. Yep theyre waiting on for me downstairs. I have a cheese and dried tomatoe baguette once more but not lager this morning.

We go to the underground station and go thorugh the commotion of tring to get a ticket out of a machine.

Apparently on this warm spring sunny day they're all in an Irsih bar ready watch the footie match.

After one pint and the darkness of the pub I leave to go outside where the air is refreshing, the sun warming and it makes me feel so what better. I graba soft drink from a road side store and admire the graffettie ona building wall. Something which latter appears again. Eventually Gaz, Greg and Les appear advising they're not goin to sit in that pub all day. The footie math must be over then.

Les brings us to this museum building, with Egyptian stuff in it. to be frank I've seen some Egyptian stuff in the British museum and while here in Berlin I want to see German stuff. and so we move on down the street,

through the first of two markets. The first being books and brick a brac. the second being art and was there some good art for sale.

A view of Gaz, Les and Greg.

Greg and the TV tower as we cross a bridge from the Museum Island.

We are heading to the Berlin Cathedral as canbe seen in the background of this photo.

Where the streets have no name they shall be paved with trees to mark each tomb.

Well here in front of the cathedral is what me and Greg call a resting stop. Green green grass otherwise know as the Lust Garden.

We enjoy the sun rays and smell of the freshly cut grass.

While Gaz tells us how cold he is?

I'm thinking about buying some shorts!

I enjoy some fanta while we rest.

In front of the cathderal there is a fountain. It looks so cool and freshing in this cold heat.

While I could have stopped there all day we eventually moved on to find somewhere to eat.

Greg ponders what are you going to order Nack?

While I ponder how did they get that air bubble in your glass Gaz. Note I had larger.

You can just see my larger glass to the top - its stag do for gods sake. And with my larger I order the Berlin speciality Currywurst and fries. It doesn't look pleasant does it?

The veiw from where I'm sitting is wonderful. Once the meal is done we head inside the hotel complex to relive our bladders and ecide it is time to go up the TV tower.

In the square next to the TV Tower is the church ofMarienkirche, in front of it is the huge Neptune Fountain called Neptunbrunnen.

Magnificant art. I want one for my garden.

Ah the tranquil sound of running water.

The real name for the TV Tower is Fernsehturm. And it is tall. Some 365m up.

I was trying to see if it swayed. But there really isn't any wind today.

We pay our way and then head to the evevator.

We are whisked to the top quickly to see the sunsetting.

You can even see our appartments from here - admitadly I have zoomed in here with my camera.

Les took a 365M dump in the toliets. Which hopefully means that nasty smell coming out of his arse is going to stop.

At the bottom of the tower once more Gaz calls Sarah to tell her just how cold he really is?

We see the world clock which you can't tell from here but it wasn't telling the correct time!

We make back to the apartments, get changed and race back to the underground at Rosa Luxemburg Platz.

We meet everyone elese in a bar that has a statue on the bar which bursts out flames from its mouth occassionly. Its a weired place.

I go outside and have a beer. Then when I try and return I'm not allowed back in withouit paying 5 euros. eh. right well we'll all move on.

In fact there is a few of us outside. Erm beer is cheap out here too. only 2 Euro. In fact while we sit back and relax I see some graffetti on a wall of a building, it is the same one as this morning.

We move onto a night club. They even have a redemtion scheme going to get your money back for your bottles. We watch a band for a while.

Mat and Nozdog get touchy on a sofa togeather.

Erm looks like some male bonding is going on.

Les talks dirty to Greg.

While Paul is dream dirty girls getting naked on the dancefloor in front of him.

Norfy advises I've got some explaining to do. But what about?

Mat seems to have pulled a bloke in a pink shirt. Scary! Notice mats beer bottle position.

Mat is really enjoying himself.

He eventually takes some notice of the naked girls on the dance floor.

We get a taxi home and I'm taken to a kebab house, which I'm left at while I satisfy my lust for the beer munchies I have got. The keebabs here are really small.

I make it home in what looks like good shape. The lights in the bathroom have been fixed thankgod. You try taking a shower in the dark.

Well I'm thinking of eating this too.

Perhaps I should have redeemed these???? Goodnight
