Berlins neuer Hauptbahnhof

Europe's largest railway (train) station was opened on Friday, 26 May 2006 with first trains arriving and departing on Sunday, 28 May 2006. It is the new Berlin Hauptbahnhof (on the site of the former Lehrter Bahnhof)

It took eight years to build and will handle some 1,100 trains a day.

My human told me that one of the best things about travelling in Europe is going by train. He has caught the train from Munich to Berlin, and from Berlin to Prague. He reckons the best trips are those going through the mountains in Switzerland.

He also told me that there are some grand train stations in Europe and it is fun to check out the all the activity going on there. Not only that, in Autumn and Winter, there are always hawkers selling roasted chestnuts, even in Rome (where it is warmer).

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


Today was a cool day. I had some lap time with my human and he fell asleep for two hours around midday (he claimed he was still sore and tired after lifting things on Friday when Emily moved out).

We were watching the football game on TV when Martin (the back neighbour owned by the two great danes Barney and Sophie) came over for a quick visit in the early afternoon (he has another job interview next week). Then Neil came around to rummage through his boxes in the garage for things, though I did get to lie on his lap for a few minutes.

Then Merlin's humans Kim, Jordan and Liam came over. When Neil left, my human and Jordan went to the movie theatre to see X-Men: The Last Stand, which they very much enjoyed.

Angel - flying is a cool power. Flying with wings even cooler.

Mystique, Magneto, Pyro and some new mutant who can "multiply" himself

Then they stayed for dinner of Mongolian lamb and rice. I did have some time on Kim's lap before they left.
