Berlin was where we chose to go for our final weekend trip. I had originally expressed little interest in the trip but was pleasantly surprised. Berlin is truly a city where new and old form together. They do not forget their past, but they acknowledge it and work to provide a stronger and better future. One morning, we climbed to the top of the Berliner Dom, a famous church in the middle of the city, and we saw the city stretched out to the edges of our vision. Giant cranes dotted the landscape in front of us as Germany sought to re-construct and re-build the great city, one brick at a time.
