Happy New Year! I hope the first few days of 2011 have been good to you and that your New Year’s celebrations were everything you wanted (or didn’t want) them to be. We spent New Year’s Eve at the party held in the Roter Salon, a club/event venue in the Volksbühne theater in Berlin-Mitte. I highly recommend going if you ever find yourself in Berlin at New Year’s (or any other time there’s an event on there); the crowd is ecclectic, friendly, and ticket prices are very reasonable.
We have also eaten many “Berliner” Pfannkuchen and watched the variety of thawing/freezing/thawing/freezing weather conditions: oh, the fun we’ll have on the road back to Kassel. May 2011 afford us all enjoyable and safe journeys, good health, and happiness!
