I don't know why I never knew how lovely Berlin is! I'm here to give a talk on Google Summer of Code at Linuxtag.
My hotel is so cool - it has a HUGE multistory circular aquarium in the center of the lobby. The people have been great so far, most people speak english, some better than I do ;), and the city itself is so lush and green, laced with canals and rivers, and mostly barely taller than the many trees, so that it's hard to remember just how big a city it is. My room is very modern but sports a tiny balcony overlooking a canal with the Berlin Cathedral beyond, less than a block away. If it ain't Baroque.... ;)
Off to bed now, for tomorrow I must talk (in complete sentences.)
