Day 16 - September 26 - Berlin
Awake Again. Woke up in the
afternoon to blue skies and off to take care of Marathon duties. Used
subway U-2 line to Northwest Berlin. The Marathon fitness fair and
reception was located in old industrial buildings -
used originally to make wire cable.
Arrived at the correct U-Bahn stop and followed the healthy looking and slim
masses - noticed marathon race bags
and Adidas shopping bags coming from the opposite direction.
Entered the fair - picked up the racing packet with bib and timing
chip. Perused the other Marathon city stands
and merchandise kiosks. Free beer stand was quite popular.
One of the traveling group needed a sweater due some chill in the
shade. So, stopped at the plaza near
Charlottesburg stop with a convenient C&A stop - very reasonable prices
(Target type scale).
Evening was the restaurant "House of 1,000 Beers". Actually,
the food was surprisingly good for such a tourist
based name. A surprise afterwards was the visiting Alsace region
marketing group - cabin looking kiosks with
wine, sweets, crepes, gifts, and area informational brochures - all parked
in the main plaza area.
