AAAAAnd 2 (zwei)

okay... on to the bus tour :)...let me just preface by saying... these pictures are terrible... and I have no idea what half of the buildings are...so I'll just try and tell you as much as I can :)

This is the Philharmonie....ummm they pretty much just do concerts here...(classical) it was in the news just befor I came here because It caught on fire...

This is Check point Charlie...there were 3 major American checkpoints along the wall the most famous is Checkpoint Charlie...I honestly dont really know why but was a really weird seeing it, because it is the original post... the wall ran along the sides of it the next picture is the original sign pretty much warning people they were leaving American protection...


This is a TV tower... they said it was one of the tallest structures in Europe...Some 300 somthing meters?... ask me how long a meter is... I dont know...











I look like a friggin cow in this picture but i wanted to post a picture with me in it so you all know that I am actually here... no one took stole my Identiy :)...except some stupid fat girl, but she'll be gone soon :) anyway!... this is the capitol building, it was under heavy fire in the war and you can still see bullet holes across from this is basically like our equivelent to the white house and the embasy's are not far either, the amrican Embasy is re-opening on the 4th of July and there is suppossed to be some big party in Teir Garden (which is like berlins "central Park")...inside is the capitol Building (ricetag) is the Parliment and it was funny because where they all sit looks a little like a cafateria.. and the chairs are this bright purplish blue, and look like waiting room chairs... the color was actually made up by the architecht and has specific name... ask me what it is.... I dont know....if you look in the upper right corner you can kind of see the dome.. that's just all windows and mirrors...here's some pictures of that

that's Amelie on the left, Tadeus, and Mathias....

=

This is a Memorial for the people who died trying to cross the wall...also saw the Jewish museum and the holocoust memorial but I can't find those pictures!.. it's ok though I'll go back


the rest are buildings that I have no idea what they are... but I promise they're important... :)

Haley! Holy so jealous. Being a nanny in a foreign country was always one of my dreams! I guess I will have to wait. Oh my goodness it looks like you are having so much fun though! Good luck with your German. I have cousins who are German and they say it's pretty easy to learn (though I don't know for sure) Any way have so much fun and take tons of pictures and maybe if we ever get to Germany we will come see you!

I'm really joking but serious at the same time. I have already been judged very differently because of my blog-thats why it's private- and I don't need other people from the valley thinking I have such a dirty mouth-oh my-. Thanx Haley. I'm glad you're on here! Over there!
