Auf Wiedersehen, Berlin...

Just enough time for a caffè macchiato at Cindy's Diner at the Tegel airport  (there's also one in Basel it seems) before flying back to Paris. I'll have to try their burgers next time!

Berlin 2011 - Day 5

Had a nice Berliner Kindl Dunkle Bock beer for lunch (better said, with lunch). B+

Afterwards we returned to the Wirtshaus Wupke (we went there last time in September)

And here's how we ended up the night (writing out postcards for you ... some of you).

Berlin 2011 - Day 3

Had a nice Märkischer Landmanm with lunch. Off to see Anita in the afternoon. Then dinner with the IIME Workshop people at the Hackesche Höfe.

Berlin Day 2

This post "in process" ....


Radeberger started in 1872 when the brewery was founded as „Zum Bergkeller,“ in Radeberg, a suburb of Dresden. Radeberger ranks number 9 amongGermany's best selling breweries.

This beer was also brewed for a period for the King of Saxony. [1] It was the first brewery in Germany to brew beer exclusively in the Pilsner style and which still exists today.

Second JOP trip of 2011 - Berlin Day 1

We pick up "los JOP en vadrouille" for 2011 in Berlin where José has come to work (IIME) and also to take advantge of the weekend to visit our old friends ... and make new discoveries.

Ulf kindly picked us up at Schoenefeld airport and we drove back to his place on Konstanzer Straße in the Wilmersdorf area. After settling in and resting a bit (we took our taxi this morning came at 5:15am) we figured out how to get to the Fraunhofer Forum, near the "Museum Island", for a quick inspection of the locale where I'll be participating in a pilot workshop.

The quick inspection turned out to be over 3 hours due to some technical problems. The team there is fantastically helpful and tenacious so all turned out well.

Afterwards (having zapped lunch) we stopped at a new place (for us) called Bagels & Bialy's to eat . I washed down my excellent Bagel Rosenthal (Frischkäse, Parmaschinken, Tomate & Salat) with a nice Staropramen beer.

Then we picked up some groceries nearby and took the U-bahn back to Ulf's for an apéro that segued into a light dinner. I greatly enjoyed a new beer: Březňák Světlý Ležák 12° (a Bohemian Pilsener beer by Pivovar Velké Březno).

For the nightcap we walked over to one of Ulf's regular watering holes, the Helion (we were there 4 months ago). We ran into the same "pilier" of the bar, a rather euphoric urologist.
