Sun Mar-25 Berlin Moscow Restaurant, Pergamon Museum, Berlin Neues Museum, Gabriele Restaurant
Despite the fact that we had "sprung forward" two weeks early in the USA, the Germans advanced their clocks an hour at 2:00 a.m. this morning. So Ben and Nate slept in until 11:00 a.m., then got up, showered, and headed out to find lunch.

We found Berlin Moscow Restaurant a few blocks from our hotel and sat down for a Russian meal while we watched the last 15 or so laps of the 2012 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix. We were surprised to see many familiar drivers names, including Fernando Alonso, Mark Webber, Kimi Raikkonen, Michael Schumacher, Jenson Button, Felipe Massa, and Pedro de la Rosa. Alonso won driving for Ferrari.

We continued walking up the Unter den Linden to the Pergamon Museum where we spent about 90 minutes admiring the Pergamon, the Ishtar Gate, and other old artifacts.

It was a short walk from there to the Berlin Neues Museum where spent a bit over an hour admiring the paintings and Rodin's Thinker.

We stopped in at the Bugatti dealer to oogle the Veyron 16.4 and then returned to our hotel for a few hours.

We walked next door to the Gabriele Restaurant for a nice Italian meal accompanied by a 1988 Gaja Langhe Chardonnay Gaia & Rey that was well over the hill but not uninteresting.
