To sum Germany up in a word: incredible. I flew into Berlin with Kaeli from back home, and then we met Jeff and I think we covered a pretty good size of the city. I really loved Berlin, it was clean and green and had a nice alternative non-touristy feel for the most part. Everyone was pretty friendly, and there was even one night where I got lost after the bar and a few people directed me home despite claiming they barely knew English!
I have a ton of pictures so I'm dividing them up into two cities. Here are some favourites from Berlin:
(This was the hotel Michael Jackson dangled his baby from)
Here is a vein of the old wall running through the city.
Pictures from the Holocaust memorial.
These were from June 17th at the memorial for the 17th of June.
I had to. One of many.
One of the two matches I got to see in Germany, and they won both which was certainly fun!
This was a map at the Topography of Terror that shows all of the Holocaust memorials throughout the country.
The giant, beautiful Synagogue.
I met up with my friend Sarah and some of her friends for some beer on my last night.
