The first time I went to Berlin, I had a number of wonderful experiences.  One night in Prinzknecht, a man I had met the night before saw me standing alone and invited me to join him and his friends at their table.  It was a largely German group, but there was an Italian and an American and a Cuban as well, so people were mostly speaking English.  Meeting New People. )

Sunday morning:  there I was, standing in Lothar's kitchen in my underwear, bleary-eyed, trying to measure coffee into the coffee maker, when I noticed that Rafael was gesticulating expressively in his kitchen window across the courtyard.  When he saw that he had my attention, he used his whole arm to beckon to me.  I shook my head, puzzled.  Then he made that "internationally recognized hand sign for 'telephone'."


The Call, The Night Before, That Afternoon... )

Ultimately, if it weren't for Berndt (I hope I'm spelling his name correctly), I never would have met Lothar or Rafael.  He was the guy who invited me to join his table at Prinzknecht )
