Off to bed already, Farrell? Are you aware that many many Kneipen won't close until 2, 3 or 4 o'clock, even on a Monday?! :D

Don't panic Farrell,

Your good mate flash has done a little research and you will be pleased to know........

Wiki Travel quote

Prostitution is a legal business in Germany. Due to the World Cup politicians and the media made a big fuss about it. Berlin has no major red-light district like Hamburg or Amsterdam but mostly apartments or brothels spread through out the city. Advertisements are in the tabloids but human trafficking and illegal immigrants are a major problem. There are regular police raid

And loads more here.


But spend a few weeks finding out about the first bit then see the sights....

Be safe too,

Heh. Prostitution.

I would suggest Mr Farrell would be somewhat of a sex-object over there, as in most places.

He asks for sex and people object

She was banging on a bit then tony. German beer goggles are every bit as good as the Tyneside version... :}

Personally, I found it strange walking straight past the Bahn station that marks what used to be Check Point Charlie. Berlin is changed beyond recognition. Well, almost... ;)

There's Black Cat Bars all over the world,they all have barmaids called Marlene,one is something of a expert on Barmaids.

There's quite a few Red Lips Bars out East, mostly hostessed by Suzy. I knew a few Suzies - Hong Kong Beer Goggles are much like the Anglo-German version... :}

Did you get the Wong Suzy though?

1st Aug 2006, 13:30
Yes, Some of those Suzies do have something to hide!

Thank you gentlemen!

You've made my day.
Am sure I'll make some friends over here soon.
Just have to work on my German and find out where the best "no brawling" bars are - I did enough of that in France!

I walked by one bar last night where the populus were shouting or singing the word "Wasser, Wasser" over and over (that's Water right?)

Off to bed again - am working up to the 4am sleep slowly but surely.

And for your daily German lesson:
That's spelled "Tschüss!". :ok:

1st Aug 2006, 22:06
Ahhh zo. Und haf you taken ze ztroll over ze Fürher's bunker yet?

"It vill zend a zhiver up your zpine" as Herr Otto Flick of the Gestapo in "Allo Allo" was wont to describe thoughts of the impending rough-handling to come from the likes of Yvette, Maria but especially Fraulein Helga... :ok:

2nd Aug 2006, 17:47
Ah yes, "Tschüss!" - Danke! :)

You should hear me ordering a Currywurst!!:eek:

2nd Aug 2006, 17:51
Be SURE to try Schneckesuppe and Gulaschsuppe!
Oh! and Bratkartoffeln, and Spaetzle of course!

2nd Aug 2006, 18:01
Will all be tried in time.

Dunkin Donuts now - at the EasyJet Internet Cafe thingy :p

Stay away from curryworst. Or maybe not. Maybe someone can make this thing somewhat less than deadly. The only time it was ever put in front of me was in a school cafeteria at the technische Hauptschule in Hannover, Germany.

Through the floor-to-ceiling cafeteria window one could clearly see where a huge hole that had once been blown in the side of a chemistry lab building had been repaired with brick and mortar. Wow, how did that happen, I asked my hosts. One of them pointed to my plate.

I like Currywurst! It's cheap, it tastes of Curry and it's not the Wurst! :}

Coat, helmet.........gone!
