Still, the best part of the day came after Jaimi and I had a great pizza from the joint up the road from him, when we hit a local pub (Eck Kneip) of Jaimi and the crew living around here and got to hang out with some aussies that are calling Berlin home for the moment. This included James and Lottie who I hadn't seen since they had left OZ to come over to Europe, so was great to hang out with them and meet everyone else, who could cross the language barrier to order beers for me, just so I could bore them by talking beer to them. Of course had to start on the local delicacy of pils (Berliner Kindl) which as expected is good for throwing down quick and has just enough flavour so you don't think you are drinking frothy water (ok, intentionally being a little harsh here), before finding a beer closer to my taste in the Erdinger Wheat Dunkel (still a bit watery in texture but with some good roasted malt flavour to make it interesting), and was great to see James and Joe came along for that ride with me. Unfortunately had such a good time that time ran away and soon we were trying to work out the bill to get home at 1am on a Tuesday night. Still, cheers to you all for giving me a great welcome to this city, and am looking forward to catching up again while I am here.
