How to relax in Berlin


Buy a monthly subway pass so can wander around without doing math and fingering robots all the time… €78 there’s a special ticket for tango dancers who promise never to go anywhere before 10pm… €60


Stop worrying about how to get home.  The night buses permeate.  Just go to the nearest U/S station and read the routes for each night bus.  You’ll recognize the name of a stop near you…  Free with monthly pass.

Eat another ice cream… €1.20

Barrel past the Germans’ unfriendly exterior and go California on them promptly.  They melt and bend over backwards to help you. 

Avoid coffee in places without very expensive and shiny machines. In AU and NZ,  people know how to pull good coffee out of cheap machines,  here a cheap machine correlates with an incompetent barista. (If you’re feeling nostalgic for rancid burned Argentine coffee you can easily find it here.)

This machine is at The Barn in Mitte where they serve birches muesli, long blacks, flat whites, and sell Australian keep cups.

Charge your phone. 

When examining a map you week see blocks of different sizes. When calculating walking times give about 7 minutes to each long block.

Eat falafel sandwiches. They are a fine art here, healthy, satisfying, and not too filing. The best are Nano at Warschauer, and Dada at Oranienburg Torr… 3€


Spend 30 minutes studying the overlay of the tram map and the U/S map. It’s so cool! You can see from the trams, and they’re included with monthly pass.

I want you to know that you are not alone…

… neither in your dreams for tango nor in your frustrations.

My deepest desire is the same as all my students and friends … those who have yet to start dancing and those who dance a lot.

It’s partnership.

One thing I’ve learned on this quest, we need to:

Stop Waiting for Partners, and start Building them.

I’ve written a 10-step Action Plan.

Are you ready to find the Partners you want?
