Zoo Station

I and some french colleagues caught the S-Bahn from Zoo Station to Fredriechstrasse Station, and took in the views of the Reichstag building and Bundekanzleramt.

We had a beer at Die Deponie nr 3, an exclellent and authentic beer shop (excellent service, thank you) then walked down to Potsdammer Platz via the Brandenburger Tor, the Tiergarten and the Monument to the Dead Jews.

Plane today, train tomorrow

I arrived in Denver last night for the first time in five years and travelled up to Broomfield. I am attending Sun's Data Management Ambassador's conference for the first time.

On the plane, I finished yesterday's Guardian Travel section. This is celebrating the opening of St. Pancras Euro\* Terminal, which reduces the train time to travel to a number of western european cities. I am expecting to visit Brussels more frequently over the next couple of months, so thier hints about Brussels should be useful, it's a shame that St. Pancras is two hours away from where I live.

Do you know the way from San Jose?

Railway to San JoseWe took the Caltrain from Palo Alto into San Francisco and then suddenly realised that we didn't know how to get to the hotel. I opened up the laptop and used my Schmap player to check the route. This is an offline browser, so I didn't have to worry about wifi on the train etc., thus proving Alexandra Moss right. I have suggested that they make the data avaiable to the phone but they're committed to serving the nomadic laptop user. Annoyingly, while they had the hotel, they don't have the railway stations, but with help from other passangers who loved our cute british accents we worked out what we needed to do.
