11:00 No time for sleeping in: there are too many Trödel and flea markets to visit! (Neukölln/Kreuzberg) We stop for a late Frühstück at Rita (Pannierstraße 12, Neukölln) before heading back out before the shops close.
20:00 For happy living, it is necessary to eat the Northern Laotian soup with a special order of pho noodles (yes, pho noodles in a coconut-milk soup) at Jimmy Woo at least once a week (Friedelstraße 24, Neukölln).
22:00 We coax out our inner party animals over martinis at Tier (Weserstraße 40, Neukölln), then a night of dancing.
