The rain that had meant soggy days in Porto followed me dutifully and I was treated to more of the same for the entire week in Berlin. But this side trip to Berlin was mostly to visit friends that I haven’t seen in a while so it hardly mattered. In between lunches and dinners and new year’s eve fireworks I squeezed in a few hours of sightseeing under marginally brighter skies. Apart from the iconic landmarks, I could scarcely recognize Berlin, so much has it changed in the years since I last visited.
