Some observations about Berlin…

1. Jason Bourne was here. If you’re not a fan of the Jason Bourne movies/books then this won’t apply to you. But if you don’t recall, in the movie Bourne Supremacy, Jason Bourne (played by Matt Damon), runs around Berlin and shoves it to the Threadstone people who are trying to track him down. Don’t forget to visit the city center and check out the TV Tower. All in typical, Bourne fashion.

2. Vietnamese food doesn’t taste good. Yeah, I went and tried it here anyways because the Lonely Planet recommended this Viet joint. What can I say? It was slightly overpriced and didn’t taste as good as in the States.

3. Berlin Wall in pieces. You can actually buy pieces of the Berlin Wall. Piece of history. Please do check-out ‘Charlie’s Checkpoint’, which was during the Cold War essentially the checkpoint border between Eastern Germany and Western Germany – one side held by the Iron Curtain and the other by the Americans. You can even get 15 passport stamps at this location…filled up my passport!
