We walked along the street, looking for somewhere for lunch, and for a WC. And for a bank. We found a free WC in the U-Bahn station (subway), and a bank after that, and then sat outside and had some delicious currywurst and fries. After the WC discovery, things improved greatly.
The owner of the house we stayed in told us about a few restaurants that served traditional German food. For dinner on Monday, we tried to find one. We ended up at a little place nearby, with tables on the grass and a German-only menu. Our waitress spoke enough English to help us order, but it was still difficult. I had pork schnitzel with gravy and potatoes that were kind of like hashbrowns, A had pork cordon blue with fries, and our brother-in-law had pork schnitzel with mushrooms and gravy, and fries. It was pretty good, and the outdoor setting was lovely (it got very dark out there in the country, and the restaurant lighting around us was quite charming).
Again, more Ticket to Ride, and then bedtime. I think I actually won once on Monday...
