One great thing about being in London is that trips to the European continent are so short.  Going to Germany isn’t a major trip like it is from home.  No jet lag!  I had a great weekend in Berlin with Anna!

Here are some images from my weekend:

On Sunday, we enjoyed an exhibition about Germans and their forests at the Deutsches Historisches Museum, before meeting my cousin, Simone, for kaffee und kuchen in Kreuzberg.

One of the most meaningful parts of the weekend was a trip to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Oranienburg.  I  joined Anna and her program on an excursion there on Friday, which was a fittingly cold and overcast day.  We decided not to get the audio guide, as I think it would have been sensory overload.  Rather, we walked around quietly to absorb what we could of the horrible events that occurred there.
