Berlin

After the hilarity of Prague, I found myself in Berlin.

The enormous city of Berlin.

It was very impressive to be honest. A genuinely massive city that lacked the closed knit intimacy of the places that I had recently visited.

In this inocuous photo, I appear to be pointing to the pavement.

What I am really pointing to is the place above Hitler's bunker of all places!
Close by was a preserved part of the Berlin wall. This symbol of oppression and grief. However, as our guide told us... it's far smaller and more underwhelming than expected...
The famous Checkpoint Charlie!
The sites and sounds! So much to do, so much to see!
