We got off at the wrong U-bahn station and walked into this parade!  The Christopher Day Parade which is the annual gay/lesbian pride parade day.  Berlin's mayor is gay so there was a big rally and the parade went on for about 8 hours, winding its way through the centre or Berlin.  It was a great time and when the pink and rainbow coloured float containing men in leather chaps in codpieces went past blaring out "YMCA" I just had to make a video.  Shame I don't know how to attach them!

Above: The Reichstag building (after all those history lessons I finally see it!)
 
Below:  The Reichstag dome.  Why do I keep going UP things when I am so scared of glass things and being able to see all the way down?!
