We arrived late in Berlin and crashed at our hostel. The next morning we headed out on a walking tour of all the architecture. Berlin is full of great modern buildings and really interesting history. We saw 'Horsehead' [the crazy sculputural thing at the top] by Frank Gehry, Pottsdammer Platz, remains of the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, Reichstagg [?], embassies, etc. We also went to the Jewish Museum by Daniel Leibeskind [also ? I'm not spell-checking any of this and I don't know German]. It was very cool. We played on these huge teeter-totters in Pottsdammer Platz.

By the way, I made it back safely from Europe! I'm now at my grandma's house in Oberlin. I realized that if you view my page from a PC, it does not show up as beautifully as it does on my Mac, therefore, you may need to adjust some settings to see the pictures as they really look. Or spring for a Mac and make your life more beautiful. Ha.
