Berlin, Saturday

Saturday morning, after a very late start and a nice brunch at a cafe near the train station with the archaeologists, we parted ways--they to Leipzig, and I on to Berlin. As I came up to the Reichstag, I came upon a puppet troupe:

After taking a few pictures I continued on. I found a book store, where I dropped about 40 euros on books for Sylvia and ran into Lindsey from the conference!
