We wanted pure relaxation and decided to go to Berlin with excursions to Potsdam and Dresden for the New Year. It turned out to be difficult to do all things we had planned on and therefore we have postponed a lot of things to do until another time. We visited museums we had never been to before and we shopped a lot. One of the things we bought was a toy dragon, which was let into the citadel on the sole condition that it did not breathe fire. We decided on a literature course just Lizette and I. We are going to read German-speaking authors, she in Swedish and I in German, and after each book we discuss it.
