Rather indulgent travel post...

Mostly for our pals back home, but you can peek in too.
Belgium was cold for us wimpy Californians, but Amsterdam got cold enough to wear the fuzzy cap Deanna bought me so my little ears won't get cold.
The wind was bitter and biting through our clothes, but some girls still had skirts on. We really are spoiled in So-Cal.
Last night in Amsterdam looking for Vegan food. You would think it would be easy in Amsterdam, but it is not so hot.
Our train ride to Berlin. I have been heavily neglecting the digi-cam so far, but today I made an effort to get some shots for the web.
We rolled into Berlin after a 6 hour ride from Amsterdam. Deanna was not too stoked to see it snowing!
Leave it to Deanna to book us some fancy-ass hotel.
We walked in and there was a 6 story fish-tank in the middle of it.
Took the elevator up to the top floor just to check out this 'attraction'
Looking down on my minions.
It was 28 degrees today / tonight, The coldest of our trip so far. Deanna was not built for cold, and she had to go 'Ninja' to feel even slightly warm.
We even had to put a glove over her "Claw" and over her cast like a rubber.
We went in to the big church "Berliner Dom" with it's massive dome inside...
Top of the cup.
We hiked up the the top of the cup to get a pre-sunset view over Berlin, very nice.
Looking over the city. So new and fresh.
Walking down the stairs of the church.
So just for Stacy and Lindsay, we have shot photos of our food. We ate at a place called Hans-Wurst, an All-Vegan restaurant. Deanna got a Tempeh, onion, and mushroom tart with a rocket salad. It was very tasty. The bread was foccacia style.
I got Veggie medallions with spicy sweet pepper sauce and guacamole rice. Also very good. We forgot to shoot our soup, Minestrone, with beans and pasta in it. So good.
Deanna and I agree, this is the best cake we have ever had in Europe.
That is saying alot for us road weary vegans...

finding good vegan food everywhere must be such a pain in the ass

Berlin is such an awesome city - you can skate wherever and no one cares and everybody is just so relaxed. I guess its because they have such a beautiful city with great galleries and views and history sites! I was living there last year and can't wait to get back this year! Ed - treat my lovely second home with great respect and love! :) Paz John
