Home safe and sound from Germany! Unpacked (kind of) last night and doing laundry today and such. Getting ready to pack for leaving for Egypt for next week! Let me catch up on the last week of my trip to Germany. From Tuesday to Thursday of last week we were in Berlin. We took the bus and almost missed it on Tuesday morning! We had to run to catch it. The bus ride wasn't bad. Went through a lot of pretty countryside with many windmills. We arrived in Berlin in the East Train Station and luckily our hostel wasn't too far away. We stayed in the eastern part of Berlin. We couldn't check in until 4 o'clock, so we left our bags in a closet at the hostel and walked around the city. We started at ... read more

Guten Abend! Just relaxing after a fun weekend in Hamburg. We are leaving for Berlin tomorrow and staying through Thursday. I'm super excited! But first what we did this weekend: Saturday we went to the "Long Night at the Museum" in Hamburg. There were over 40 Museums participating! We went to the Hamburg history Museum. In addition to the normal exhibits, there was a fashion show planned for 11 pm. We were there early, so we didn't see the show, but we did get to watch the dress rehearsal. Then we went to the Rathaus (city hall) and the Rathaus art gallery. I got to see some famous photographs which I remembered from my Art History course my freshman year, including some stuff by Man Ray. We then went to the art museum, which was really ... read more

Greetings from Deutschland! I've been in Germany for exactly a week now with my Mom, visiting an exchange student who lived with us while I was in high school. His name is Arjang. We are staying with Arjang and his two roommates, Tim and Stephen, in their apartment in Hamburg. It looks a lot like a typical college age guy apartment, except maybe a little better decorated, with lots of furniture from Ikea. Arjang is really in to film and graphic design. He even has his own T-shirt collection at Check it out! Tim is really into music and plays is guitar or bass a lot. He even wrote a song that is in the background of one of Arjang's short films. Stephen, well, I'm not really sure what Stephen is in to, but he ... read more
