We begin with a luscious breakfast at Pucci's, a little cafe near our hotel. Funny thing...what we call "French Toast" the Germans call "Cinnamon Toast." This had to be the BEST I've ever tasted! They managed to cover the toast with a "crust" of the sugars and cinnamon ~ dee-lish!
As time went on we noticed the pride German people take in all that they create/produce. A large stein of German draft beer costs 2.9 euros while a glass of wine from Italy or France costs 6.9 euros!
Next it was on to the Zoo. This site was less than mile from the hotel and we needed as much walking that day after the breakfast we just had!
|some German humor!|

We head back to the hotel and get ready for some gift shopping and dinner at KaDaWe Department Store. Can't resist showing you these photos...we decided to buy our dessert and bring it back to the hotel room. Remember that 6th floor at KDW that I talked about in an earlier post ~ the floor that's nothing but food? We went to the bakery section and bought these...dig the fancy wraps!!
|the box is covered with tissue paper ~ love those Germans!|
|our fabulous eclairs|
