Here are some pictures from the first night of exploring.
There were a lot of boats on the river
The TV Tower
We woke up early the next morning had breakfast at the hotel and then headed for our segway tour. We had a three hour guided tour of the city. When we got there we had a mini class on how to ride the segways. At first it was a hard to figure out, but once I got the hang of it, it was a blast. During the tour we got to see parts of the wall, Checkpoint Charlie, Hitlers Bunker, the last of Hitlers watchtowers, a Holocaust Memorial, and many other things. There is so much history in Berlin, I learned quite a few things from the tour. By the end of the tour no one wanted to get off the segways, we were having too much fun! After giving them back we went for lunch and then did a bit more walking around the city. We bought a few things and then sat by the river for a bit before heading back to the hotel. We hung out at the hotel for a bit and then went for dinner and walked around for a while because the next morning we were already leaving.

There are many building in Berlin that are built around parts of the wall that still stand.

The hotel that Michael Jackson held his son out the balcony

Look for us in Mall Cops 3
Throughout the city where the wall used to stand, there are memorial plaques like this one
Memorial to the murdered Jews of the Holocaust.

On the outside of many of the buildings you can see bullet holes from the war
We had to get up really early the next morning because we both had early flights. It was so nice to see my dad again! I can't wait to see him in May when I go home! Once I got back to school I had to make sure my paper got turned in and then I had to continue with more work. This is my last week of work here and I am planning a trip to Poland in mid-May right before Brooke comes!!
