"Berlin, our first stop on tour. One thing you must know about Berlin is they aren’t known for their hospitality as our local guide, Katinka said, 'We Germans have a perpetual grumpiness and are eternal pessimists. We’re great complainers and love a good argument. The age of romanticism and poetry is over.' The personality of the nation had changed since the wars and Soviet occupation. It would be hard to stay positive when all living generations can’t remember a time in the nations history where it wasn’t marked with a stain. One man in history has destroyed the image of this beautiful country. But there is friendliness to be found here."
