Berlin, day 4. Flea market and museums.

Our morning started with a short bike ride across town to meet our slightly hung over friends. On route we came across a car museum for the Trabi cars which used to be extremely popular in Berlin along with the VW Beetle. Interesting shapes and colours but they didn’t look very comfortable.

Next stop was the flea markets. They were huge. But it was so busy and soooo hot. Some great stuff. Weirdly though loads of stalls had hundreds of spectacles for sale but some only had one lense or one arm. Why? After a short stroll to find a geocache and a little more history we headed of in the direction of Brandenburg gate.

Quite an impressive structure and an interesting area to people spot. Whilst we were sat in the shade some Chinese people came up to us to have their photos taken with us, strange folk.

A chap seemed to be protesting for something, as you can see he wasn’t wearing much, I know it’s a very hot day but really!

From here we took a stroll to some more caches and headed to a restaurant for lunch. The roads had been closed off to cars and we wondered why, but it appears it was a friendly protest.

Lunch was sat outside again watching the protest dancing its way through the streets. Rich enjoyed a gorgeous steak whilst I had a traditional German schnitzel.

The rest of the afternoon was spent visiting the spy museum and enjoying a drink and dessert. Oh and a few bears.
