Breaking news: we finally had summer this past weekend and temperatures got up to 100°F, which is obviously like Death Valley for Germans. Since it was finally warm enough to go swimming without getting hypothermia, we spent Sunday at Lehnitzsee, which was nice except for the random patches of aggressive algae (or octopi, it was hard to tell). Not much of a tan to speak of, but it’s a start. Of course, you can’t expect summer to last forever, so no one was too surprised about the violent gusts of wind and hail that lasted all night and left Berlin a slightly cloudy 73°. But that’s okay – hopefully Germany’s just saving up some really hot weather for when we got to the Baltic Sea later this month.
