    You're lucky. I was on a rampage. How did you spend new years? Mine was pretty cool...there were fireworks! Then again, I was by myself.

    mine was pretty much any other day as well..just attended one house party for 2 hours which got quite boring so i went home and smoked a few joints and watched a couple of movies

    the berlin fireworks seem wonderful tho! that'd be pretty awesome :grin:

    I didn't do much for new years either but it was pretty around 11 I went to the Brandenburger Tur to the party mile. They had blocked people from going right up to the gate by then....there were a million people there so I'm assuming that they were too full near the gate. We stood with about a 100,000 people or more from far away, bursting fireworks and waiting for the display to begin. At about 11:55, everybody started singing winds of change and that was pretty actually means something in Berlin to the slightly older people who've stood at the Wall. Once the fireworks started and I got quiet and just stared....they were unbelievably good. And because we were further away, the explosion made very muffled booming sounds which added to the effect. I was constantly reminded of the mother ship in Independence Day exploding and falling to the Earth for some reason. It almost made me forget that I didn't belong there. I have never been to a proper fireworks show before...its fun when we burst our own but this was a visual spectacle. Maybe you guys have seen better at Diwali? I haven't but maybe that just depends on the crowd you're around.

    For anyone who cares, this is what I saw (except from about half a mile away)

    That's pretty amazing, even to read. Here in colombo ppl got drunk and lay on the streets, and in the church, chatting away in singhalese..
    As for me, I tried as hell to convince my friends to come, they didn't. I ended up spending the night in my ship. Pretty boring. But there were no fireworks, none. Couldn't believe its a nation's capital. Looks like a village.
