Left ALT-C to head home and get Bruno out of kennels again.

I’m in Liverpool for a couple of days for the ALT-C conference. This poster was up outside the Liverpool students guild protesting participation in the national students survey. Good to see students being political
Got my customary souvenir from the Ritter Sport shop in Berlin
We played Davos tonight who 10 days ago beat us 10-1 in our first CHL game. We’ve learnt a lot in the intervening period (losing twice to Czech champions Liberic). In an incredible game we won 4-3.
Bruno has been in kennels for over a week. He’s been doing well in there, he likes the people and enjoys going in, but it was good to have him back. His head tilt is still evident but his walking is better.
I love a Ritter Sport so was delighted to hear of a Ritter Sport shop in Berlin. You can make your own bars, and choose from all the flavours you never knew you wanted.
Did Berlin aquarium today.
Went to the Pergamon museum today (and the German history museum). The Ishtar Gate is truly breathtaking.
All this walking around being a tourist is exhausting though!
We did one of those hop on hop off buses today so took in a bit of the Wall, Topography of Terror, checkpoint Charlie, and the Holocaust Memorial.
