Ths weekend I had the opportunity to travel to Berlin with all of the WKU student teachers, Heike, Heike's student teacher, and another English teacher from Anne-Frank. We left Friday afternoon and took a 5-hour train ride from Werne to Berlin. Following all of the stories and laughs had on the train, we arrived to Berlin around 7:30 and had a dinner reservation at 8:00. If you want an eventful evening, get 11 adults together and listen to the convesations that surface. I think I laughed more this weekend than I have in a long time!! Saturday we had a busy day planned. Heike booked us a tour guide for a day long tour of Berlin. We had the opportunity to see the Berlin Wall and learn about all of the history behind this tragic event. While visiting the wall and the museum, many tears were shead. I think it's safe to say that it was an emotional experience for everyone. During our adventure of Berlin, we saw the President's house (with one policaeman guarding it), the government building, the Brandenburg Gate, old Jewish homes, morals and tiles decorated by children, mouments, climbed 285+ steps to see over the city of Berlin, and gained a lifetime time of memories! Belwo are some of the pictures from this past weekend. I could go on and on all day, but I'm going to stop here! There are more pictures on my Facebook! :)
These are just a few pictures taken at the Berin Wall Saturday. The first on is me standing on the West side of the Berlin Wall. The second picture is of my friend Jordan and I at the Berlin Wall. The last picture is me with one foot on the East side of the wall (my right foot) and my other foot on the West side of the wall (my left foot).
The Brandenburg Gate!
My friend Morgan and I outside of the President of Germany's house, no big deal!
These pictures are from a memorial Berlin Wall in Berlin. The first picture is a Mosaci Peace Wall. The next picture is one of the tiles painted by a student. This tile automatically caught my eye and touched my heart! How can you read that and not completely agree? The last picture explains what the wall is about and it's history!
