Some more for Berlin

Haven’t really ventured out today as it’s been raining incessantly. Doesn’t really bother me though as it’s a good chance to recover from some blisters induced by all the walking and gawking.

I can’t really understand how Berlin (Germany’s capital with 3.6 million people) can be so cheap. Let’s break this down a bit.

1) Food. Ate out at a great Turkish restuarant a couple of nights ago. The mains were around 7 euros. Beers 2 euros. Lunch today was an unarguably awesome kebab for 1.80 euros.

2) Beer. I’m working my way through a 6 pack of very drinkable German beer which cost 2.99 euros. AUD $0.75 a beer – I haven’t ever seen prices like that.

3) Internet. Fast and generally 0.79 euros and hour.

Most of the above is on par with the Czech Replublic. Brilliant. I think I’m in for a horrific shock when I get to London.

Oh something I neglected to mention a few days back: Czech drivers are the worst I have ever seen. Worse than Korean drivers. Steer clear!
