I had a great time in Berlin. I spent of my days riding a bicycle
around Berlin, sitting in parks or book stores. I visited the Jewish
museum in Berlin, which gives a history of Jews in Germany. I also saw
the bradenburg gate and Checkpoint Charlie (which was the checkpoint
that cars used when the wall was closed, and almost became the site of
WWIII when Russian and American tanks had a standoff there)
big display there that talks about the whole history of the wall and
Berlin. Most of my other time was spent reading in the book store (I
probably didnt need to fly half way around the world to do that,
but...), or just wandering around people watching. Ive been relly lucky
that the weather has been perfect, not a cloud in the sky.
Its been great staying with my cousin Hanno and his girlfriend and two
kids. They have been so hospitable (they´re probably reading this, so I
had to write that...just kidding, Hanno). They really have been great.
Took me out every night. Wouldnt let me pay for anything. Making me
feel totally welcome in their house. I hope I get to return the favor
in the US sometime.
Well, anyway, Im off to Dresden for a couple days, then Erfurt, then
Munich. I put some pictures on, Ill keep tryin to put up as many as I
can...until I get mugged and my camera gets stolen......
