I am back from vacation

Hi, I came back from Germany last week.
I stayed in Berlin where my sister lives for about 10days. And then, I came to love Berlin.
Berlin itself has a deep historical story as you know, but I felt it is a kind of a new city. I saw many international people over there and many new shops open now. There are many art museums, beautiful world heritage sites, good food and delicious BEER!
When I arrived to Berlin it was really hot. So I had some beer from the lunch time, after that, we went to see some palaces and museums, then took a break at a cafe and had some beer. At night we went to a bar to have fresh oysters and delicious wine(L). Afterward we went to a cafe to have a drink again.
I was surprised how cheap the beer is in Berlin!! It was half price of the one in Japan.
I like it that some of the museums have free admission days once a week. It almost never happens in Japan. I also like it that they have restored the castles, the churches, and the historical buildings, even though those building were once destroyed completely in the war. In Japan, especially in Tokyo, we always tend to create new things and old things don’t really exist now.
↓I don't remember the name of this building,..
For souvenir, I bought a Big box of HARIBO(the most famous gummy in the world, which is made in Germany) for my colleagues. However, when I came to work today I found that HARIBO box almost empty!
Hey, my colleagues, you guys finished up HARIBO only for 5days!!?? I just cannot believe that!! I doubt Masa ate most of them, because he is the BIGGEST hungry man at my work. ;P
↓ET also has a sad face....
Other things, I had three bottles of wine and several kinds of beer for souvenir. But I couldn’t bring them to Japan because of the overweight at the airport in Berlin. So I had to leave them with my sister. That was really sad...
But, overall, I really really enjoyed my summer vacation this year. I definitely go to Berlin on my next vacation.
