And the trip begins ...

Flight over might have been more difficult, but it would have taken real effort to get there.  But, we made it and the bad flight will be forgotten and the trip will out survive the length of the travel here - just under 48 hours including an evening in Berlin where we did have a hotel room.

After our lack of sleep we had little energy to do much in Berlin for our short evening stay - a 4 am wake up call for our flight out of Berlin.  But we did take a walk around.  We revisited the East Berlin - Ampelmannchen - the little traffic light man.  

And it was our first adjustment back to European living - showers with half doors - (just try to keep the floor dry), no washclothes,  light switches only on the outside of the bathrooms, different mechanisms for flushing toilets for every one that you visit, first floor is now the second floor, and that is just day 2.

But we have successfully made it to Marseille - a beautiful city on the Meditarean coast and second largest city after Paris. 
We successfully checked into our apartment whbich we rented thru VRBO, first of many to follow.  Did I mention that it is a third floor walk-up?
