It was time to had out, the weather is sunny and warm. First I went to the TV Tower, 22.5 €. I was early for 10 am entry but there was already a crowd in masks. A nice elevator ride to the 205m deck. There you can see how flat is Berlin and the visual line where Wall was.

Then we went for a drink in James-Simon-Park by the Spree river on the other side from Museuminsel seating in a beach chair. We covered different topics. Really glad to have a chance to spend some time with her. And then again walk, to the hostel. Altogether I walked more than 30 kilometers that day on 30 degrees. Feet were not happy. Back at the hostel, is time for another beer, 2 4 1, 20 €. Žan joined for a few rounds. Nice evening. I was still not sleepy so I went out, join one pub-crawling group, I returned around 6 am in the morning to the hostel, 100 €.
