Ich bin ein decadente Berliner!

Just to say hi to you guys quickly in between my traveling:

A week ago I was invited to cruise the Amsterdam canals on a jollyboat.

Not only did we have wonderfull weather but the atmosphere was marvellous. Fyi: I'm the guy holding the camera.

After the tour we visited the Amsterdam Wester Church. After church a great diner and just the magnificent evening ending..hmm.

Anyway to continue the story of my decadent life;

I was invited to Berlin this week together with my colleague directors of our company. We stayed in the famous Adlon hotel Unter den Linden opposit the Brandenburger Tower. We drove around Berlin in old Trabants, flew over Berlin in an old Dakota, sailed on the Spree river on a longboat, visited almost every monument such as The Reichstag, Checkpoint Charly, you name it, and had great diners. Oh, and we did some working by the way. But not too much I have to admid..

So, to finish this little show off: next week I will be in New York, Philidelphia and Wayne to visit my American colleagues. You should not have mercy upon me. Nope, I don't feel sorry for myself either.

Just wondering if the customs allow me to pass the American border since I have been bashing Dubya for a while. We'll see.



So for now I say: farewell my friends. I have to pack my bag again. Hope to see you again on my return in two weeks. Take care!!

Too bad you're not coming to Austin, this is quite the party and have fun and alternative place in the big sea of red republicanism! So, if you can fenagle it, come on down and I'll make sure we'll have a babysitter so we (dh and moi) can give you the fun grand tour of America's number 1 College Party town! (I know, what an honour right?) hope you sleep well in planes! Btw..my mom usually complains 'steen en been' because of US customs although the last time she visited, she did not get picked out for a search (my widowed mom man, ya never can tell I guess)..
and oh..IF you ever make it down here, I'll only ask for an exchange of drop for an exchange of a tour of the town..I'm cheap!

DA - I do feel a bit sorry for you having to pass into the US, but not that much!:-)

Ingrid - I have heard Austin is like a blue drop in the middle of a big red state. Maybe if I visit there sometime it will change my opinion of TX. I have only been to Houston, so that is my opinion of TX.

"Ich bin ein dekandenter Berliner" - would probably be my spelling. Your wording makes it look "al dente"
Enjoy your trip!
