Hello again, friends!
I know it has been a while since my last post, but our weekend Berlin trip was followed immediately by a change of schools and my schedule has been jam-packed. It's certainly time for an update!
On Friday afternoon, we hopped on a train to Berlin. All 8 of the American student teachers came along, and we were led by Frau Armbrust, Frau Biehl, and Christopher, a German student teacher. We arrived at our hotel around 7:30 PM, so we had just enough time to settle in and grab some dinner before resting up for a full day of adventure on Saturday.
On Saturday, we walked what felt like one hundred miles. We made trips all over the city, utilized a variety of public transportation, and encountered Berlin on a deeper level. Many of our stops were historical and jarringly emotional, as you will see in the photos below.
On Sunday, we enjoyed a more leisurely day of exploring and sightseeing. Our first stop of the day was the President's house. After that, we visited the Victory Tower. We climbed more than 250 steps in order to experience the spectacular view from the top.
Our trip to Berlin was a non-stop, full-blown, German adventure and we loved it all! This week, Kelsey, Jordan, and I began teaching at an elementary school in Werne. Tomorrow, we will teach the students about Thanksgiving and then we will cook a Thanksgiving meal for my host family. More pictures, then, shall follow soon!
