Day 5 Sunday, Our concert

Sunday we had brunch in a fancy hotel which featured an enormous aquarium with a double-decker elevator inside it. The brunch wasn't that great and it was quite expensive so that was a bust. Also, in what was becoming an altogether too common theme for the trip, drinks were expensive and small, meaning you had to chose between dehydration and bankruptcy. Afterward, we came back hostel to change into concert dress, and left for our concert.

The concert went quite well (better than the December version for the most part I would say), although it was fairly sparsely attended. I'd say about 30 or 40 people showed up, including someone from the US Embassy and the director of the Komische Oper, who is apparently from Ithaca.

Afterward, we all had a nice dinner at a nearby Italian restaurant and took copious amounts of pictures of each other. Later, I ventured out to explore German nightlife, but discovered it was pretty dead on a Sunday night in January. Nonetheless, a good time was had by all.
