Berlin Vacation

At the beginning of June Mark and I took a vacation in Berlin for a few days.  We really enjoyed Berlin!  It was clean, convenient, almost everyone spoke English, we had great food, and it was fun learning about its history.  It was a short vacation, so we weren’t able to cover everything in the city.  We did spend a day outside of the city in Potsdam, a day in the Berlin Zoo, and went to a classical concert at the Konzerthaus Berlin.

Mark was so nice he got us a room at this very nice hotel.  I enjoyed several cups of espresso everyday from the espresso machine in the room!

Brandenburg Gate (and Yoda)

Berlin Philharmonic Hall.  I’m a big fan of the Philharmonic.  Unfortunately tickets were sold out way too early.

We learned a lot about the Berlin Wall.  That’s Mstislav Rostropovich (one of my favorite cellists) playing by the wall the week after the Wall fell.
