Saturday 29th October 2016

Breakfast this morning was in the local supermarket!
Egg mayonaisse open sandwich and a coffee (x 2) for around €6.

Quite strange sitting in the front of a supermarket at a couple of tables eating breakfast but it seems to be fairly commonplace here.

The food wasn't bad either.

Today we visited a friend in the Neukölln district.
Google maps told us it was a 20 minute drive, so we walked.

The good thing about walking is that you see much more.
Who wants to just see the inside of a U-Bahn?

And it's only about an hours walk.

We had arranged to meet our friend at Klunkerkranich, a rooftop bar.
The bar, along with a few stalls, is situated on the top level of a multi-storey car park.

To get there you have to go through a shopping mall, into the car park, walk up the stairs (or take the lift) until you can go no higher and then walk up the ramp to the roof.

There is a €3 entry fee in the evenings but they just ask for donations during the day.

The views of Berlin are spectacular.

When you buy drinks you pay a deposit of €1 for each item, which makes the prices appear more expensive, especially if you buy a large wine and get two glasses as you pay a €3 deposit. 
But, of course,you get this back when you return the glasses.

But wrap up warm if you plan to sit outside in October as it gets very chilly!!

Dinner was at Al Andalos, a Lebanese restaurant on Sonnenallee 40.

Quite small but very popular and great value.

A huge plate for 2 (that three of us shared) of vegetarian delights; hummus, falafel, salad, rice, bread, for only €10.

After a plateful of food as good as that, there is just one thing to do: have a cocktail!

We ended up in Sadhu2, an Indian restaurant that was advertising Happy Hour cocktails.

Even though we told them that all we wanted was drinks, they still brought us some poppadoms and dips.
And when our drinks came, he asked us if we would like a starter.

The cocktails weren't the best, so we drank up and

Next stop was Bei Schlawinchen.

A quirky, popular bar with good prices, happy locals and great decor.

The only downside is that they allow smoking indoors.
I'm a smoker but I prefer a smoke free bar!

Last stop was Cafe am Kotte, a bar on a terrace overlooking Adalbertstrasse for a beer and a vodka.

A good ending to a great day.
