A spare day up my sleeve, so I visited Berlin for the day - and was hosted by my and my parents' dear friends, Mike and Monica. Monica welcomed me to the city with a German breakfast - something I have been hankering for. Oh my god. This is worth getting up early for!! Liverwurst (sp?), salumi, a shrimp, raddish, capsicum mayo paprika salad, amazing bread, other relishes, quark and endives (whitlof). And lots of coffee!!
