The next day Angela and I decided to take some pictures in front of the Brandenburg Gate. Then I dragged Angela over to see German Parliament with me. I for some reason find Parliaments to be really interesting. Maybe it's because I'm thinking of working for the government at some point. Who knows. We stood in line for a long time, Angela was about to bail on me, but it really was a beautiful day so I got her to stick with me through it. We finally made it inside and if you ask me it was totally worth it. We took an elevator to the top, did I mention Angela does not like heights. Getting into Parliament is free and the views from the top and the inside of the dome are so cool looking I would say it is totally worth waiting for. After we where done we wandered through a park and back over to the Holocaust Memorial; we went into the Holocaust Museum which is part of it. It was a well done museum but not as good as the one in DC. There was one room where you could listen to Holocaust survivors and those who passed on during that time stories. You did not find out until the last line if they survived or died and most where recorded in their own or family members voices. We sat for a while and listened and learned. There are so many recordings that if you sat there for a year you would not hear one repeat, and they are still recording more. We headed outside in search of something more uplifting to do. We walked through a park and headed toward a war memorial when we got there we realized there was some sort of festival going on. It was KINDERFEST and we were psyched, not only do we love kids but we pretty much are big kids! We proceeded to walk around the festival taking it all in. The funny rides and performances by German children. We were in Germany so we had to go the Brezel Stand and get some brezels, yes it is the same thing as a pretzel just German. It was then goodbye to Germany as well as Angela and my last trip together. We have had such fun and there are sure to be more adventures to come. I was now looking toward finals and the end of school along with exciting trips I had planed with Mike. You'll have to just keep reading along to hear more about them.
 
Love to my friends and family <3
