1. I visited my best friend Chris in Berlin a few years ago.

2. We went straight from the the airport to Mauerpark, where the wall used to be.

3. Chris bought some tape.

4. Nynne and I helped Tomas move glass for a project.

5. From there we went to Chris's apartment in Mitte.

6. (He has since moved.)

7. We shopped.

8. And looked around.

9. We walked in a park.

10. And went to an art gallery.

11. You can drink anywhere.

12. I don't speak German.

13. We went to the KW.

14. What was inside was even better.

16. And looked out the window.
