things to do in berlin when you're dead tired

after a fantastically gruelling week, i'm back from berlin, rolling around in the normality of the states. the work has piled high, and i have a lot to prep for this week, but in spite of it all, my girls love me and have been smiley and wonderful.

the time in east berlin was stunning.
new friends and new ideas, all wrapped up nicely in good german beer and bad germano-mexican food.
anyway, the concept of having allies five thousand miles from home that live in a language that simply doesn't compute with the american south is a stimulating and humbling experience. i'm intrigued by what will happen next.

While i was in town, i got to track through one of the original churches pastored to by Dietrich Bonhoeffer - a potential new home for the Berlinprojekt, and a chilling place to sit and pray.
