July 8, 1989

Woke late and missed breakfast. Rode Metro into East Berlin and back (reference to The Hobbit redacted).
Me and Annette

Went to the British Embassy. Got Lecture on Berlin Airlift.

"It was nice to sit out in Berlin at a cafe and watch the wheels go round and round. Peaceful euphoric, might do it again tomorrow morning" (should have been redacted). Did some shopping. My roommates were 1.5 hours late for the bus.

After dinner went to a discotheque and had a sip of beer. I actually wrote this next bit back in 1989, "I felt like an adult so I didn't order every drink in the house like a thirsty American teenager who's just been given the privilege to drink with impunity. I was kinda scared that they would get caught because the girls didn't know how to hold their liquor. Despite my warnings they drank until a half hour before we left for the Metro. We met Mr. & Mr. & Mrs. Teacher Leader. Got back to the hotel and got lecture on relationships with girls with 3 weeks left. Right now, situation awesome. All girls "like" me or don't mind me..."(we'll leave it at that, it goes Sally Field downhill from there.)

I didn't write it down, but I have a vivid memory from that club that sticks with me today. We were out dancing at that club/discotheque and a couple songs came on that we knew..."Funky Cold Medina" or maybe "Wildthing" from Tone Loc & "Veronica" by Elvis Costello & maybe "Bust a Move" Young MC. Anyway, when we heard Tone Loc we just went nuts and sang along. Everyone else in the club was staring at us.
