Where I stayed
We took some pictures of the places we saw, and we also drove past the remaining portion of the Berlin Wall!
After the tour we went back to the area called "Checkpoint Charlie" and bought small pieces of the Berlin wall.
After we got back from the tour we took advantage of the Hotel's "fitness center", which turned out to be just 4 treadmills in a bedroom sized room...but it worked.
The next day we visited the Jewish Museum...it was quite an experience to see the incredibly horrid and tough history that the Jews have gone through, and to do that in the country that the holocaust took place added a whole other element of connection and reality
One of the pictures is Jamie walking through the Museum, and the other is Josh's face on a German soldier.
The third picture from the Jewish Museum is a model of the building...we just wanted to show how interesting and artistic this building was...almost everything was built in this fashion for a reason...almost every aspect made the visitor think up their own interpretation...very cool.
The last picture is of Josh and a Bear in the lobby of our hotel...We have no idea what these bears are symbolic of...but they are everywhere...we probably saw 20 just like this one but with varied paint and colors.
We are now at the train station about to depart for Amsterdam...We really enjoyed Berlin and would absolutely return if we got the opportunity.
Hope all is well with everyone at home...Only 1 more week of our trip!!! See everyone soon
