We went to Berlin on the way to me taking Kate back to college. Everyone came along although after the weekend Kate and i were to go back to the states (me for 2 weeks; Kate to go to college at UWEC) and Melissa, David, and Noah returned to Dresden.
Here are some of our pictures from that trip.
Kate and Noah kickin back on the train ride to Berlin.
Noah and I in front of the Reichstag.
David meets the Brandenberg Gate. David contemplates moving it to Minnesota.
Holocaust memorial (Reichstag in background).
Segment of the Berlin wall - this part was partially distroyed in 1989 when the wall was removed. You can see the damage from when it was opened and people tore down parts, however this section was saved shortly after and is now a historic site.
Noah looking at the line where the Wall stood. Imaging what it must have been like having a wall through a city. He did the american thing and keep jumping back and forth; free, not free.
