Finally we did something we've talked about for a few days - got onto a random tram (streetcar) and rode it way far out into East Berlin (about a 45 minute ride) to the end of the line and back again. These trams serve the locals, operate mainly in the east of the city, and don't serve tourist areas. What we saw were endless dreary blocks of apartments, mile after mile of them, where obviously hundreds of thousands of people live far from the throb of downtown Berlin. But it was a relaxing and interesting way to look around after a long day of walking. Tonight we are relaxing at home, and trying to plan what to do with our last full day in Berlin. We have only scratched the surface and there is so much more to see. It might take a year of full-time touring to see this city properly!
