Berlin, Germany

This was our first full day in Berlin. It was a cloudy day and the sun did not light up the city like we would have wanted, but at least there wasn’t any heavy showers to ruin it. We had a late start today, but we were able to see a good portion of the city. There are over 200 museums in Berlin making it very hard to decide where you want to go in the time you have.

The train station we arrived at in Berlin the day before.

Hopped on the metro towards the Jewish Museum, this is a hallway connecting trains. We were accompanied by the sound of an accordion player.

A memory void in the museum. An empty room except for hundreds of metal faces strewn across the floor.

The day was coming to an end,so we started heading back. We ended up having dinner in the market we found earlier.
