Berlin is a nice city and I would like to go back sometime and play tourist. Great restaurants and good music venues. Went to A-Trane (Larry Goldings trio) and Quasimodo (Blues rock with German 5 piece blues band called ‘five‘ & bought their CD Five in the Kitchen. Great food at Ottenthal – best pudding I’ve ever had: Poppyseed & Lavender Sabayon).
