I am here in Berlin to attend a conference. I am the chair of a session, and I am giving a talk. Today was supposed to be a "user meeting" which is usually filled with a lot of useful information about current applications, and new technology that will improve the field. No doubt - it was full of those things but unfortunately the meeting was in German. So, Larry and I went out and found the Schloss Charlottenburg. We also had a lovely lunch outside at a Cafe, found the Kaiser Wilhelm church (which is not visible because of renovation) and ate dinner at a Hoffbrau Haus Biergarten. We had some beers and some great German food.
