big city in Europe; Berlin!
Arguably the most important city of the last century. Melinda and I will be
staying here for three days. We are staying in a hostel called ‘Green Eggs and
Ham’ which is right across the street from the hostel Colin and I stayed the
first time we were in Berlin in
’05. It is located in the former sector of East Berlin,
which is now considered the more artistic and entertaining part of Berlin.
After getting situated in the hostel I took Melinda out to see some of the
city. We walked down to Museum Island and had a good lunch at a café looking
across the river at the Berliner Dom. While eating lunch we noticed a bunch of
people moving film production equipment, so after eating we headed down the way
they were headed. We found where they had set up and watched them film a few
takes for a scene. After watching that we headed down Unter den Linden to HumboltUniversity; I pointed out the
square where the book burnings took place in 1933. There is a lot of police
cars flying up and down Unter den Linden with sirens blaring. Not sure what is
going on, but there is a large polizei presence around this area tonight. We
eventually made our way down to the Brandenburg Gate arriving just in time to
see the sunset behind it.
