Visitors – 1

Neil and Barbara flew into Berlin last Wednesday for a five day visit. They came to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary. They were here for their 25th and liked the city so decided to return.

They told me this when I visited them with Trish. Just scroll to the next page and you will find that story as part of my Brighton visit. We met at Sussex University many, many years ago! It is always nice to see them for they are a lively couple and enjoy life.

I met them at the airport and took them to my place to relax in the garden. They did this with a light lunch and something cool in a glass. Lots of chatting and catching up on news. I then went with them to find their hotel.

It is on The Ku’damm and called Hotel California. Yes, it is true! It was named after the pop song from the 1970s. Very nice and friendly place. After they freshened up we set off to meet Marga. All of one S-Bahn stop from the hotel.

We went to her favourite bar-restaurant. I have been there many times and also like the relaxed atmosphere, good food and service. They quickly got to know each other and I was happy to watch them doing so.

I was the first to leave for I had a series of appointments next day, and it takes me at least one hour to get home via public transport.They got to know each other better and have another glass of something cool!
