Return From Berlin

I got back to the States a couple days ago after spending a week taking in the sights and sounds of Berlin, Germany. It was an incredible experience and I enjoyed every minute of it with the exception of my United airlines flight from Chicago to St. Louis being delayed for six hours as I made my way back home. Nevertheless I’ll always remember this adventure for the amazing places and people I got to meet throughout.

Here are all the different places I visited:

  8. Neue Wache Memorial (“Mother With her Dead Son” by Käthe Kollwitz)
  9. Berlin Cathedral
  10. Weltzeituhr (Worldtime Clock) at Alexanderplatz
  11. Soviet War Memorial (Treptower Park)
