Thursday evenings, all of the museums on Museuminsel are free, so we took advantage of the money savings and waited to see the some of the other exhibitiions that night. Unfortunately the majority of the artifacts are labeled and described in German, so it was a fairly quick visit. I did get to see the Bust of Nefertiri. That was pretty cool.
Friday we went to Potsdam, an area of town that is home to Friedrich the Great's palace of Sans Souci (without concern).
Yesterday we checked out of the hostel and made the journey to Quedlinburg. We took the train from Berlin to Magdeburg and from there to Quedlinburg. It was about 3 hours on the train total, but a 4.5 hour trip. When we arrived, the three of us who are staying with host parents went to the Tech Center while the rest checked into their pensione. I'm staying with the Allner/Lietz family. Karsten Lietz is my host father and Sonja Allner is my host mother. They have three sons who, Marco, Max, and Tim. Marco does not live in the house, he's moved out and is a member of the Germany Navy.
They have a beautiful home. I'll get some pictures later and post them in my next entry. Well, now that play time is over I have to get back to rehearsal. Love ya'll.
