If you know me, you know I’m not a regular club-goer. In DC, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. But in Berlin, clubs are the cornerstone of the nightlife. So last night I got my first taste of club life here.

The music is a problem I’ll need to overcome. Now, the Europeans I was with last night at Cookies explained to me that there was actually a great variety of music being played: house, progressive house, minimalist, and maybe even a little dubstep and trance (I kind of lost track). But all of the songs had the exact same tempo and electro-instumentals and lacked any vocals. Occasionally the (electronic) bass would drop out and then come back in. But outside of that I really couldn’t discern any changes. I guess that’ll come with time. (Someone who’s never tasted alcohol would probably say that scotch and bourbon and rye all taste the same: terrible.)

That said, it was a good enough time that it was light out when we left the club, and after a foray into a nearby park — pure tranquility, that rare urban silence — it was after 7:30 in the morning when I finally got back home. That’s in no way atypical here.

Now I just need to shift my sleep schedule by a good seven or eight hours to get ready for the week ahead.
