On our first weekend in Germany the group traveled to the nation's capital in Berlin. We stayed in a hostel on the east side of the city, which due to previous decades of neglect still shows its battle scars. The city itself was very intimidating because of its huge size, but was nevertheless easier to navigate than other German cities because of the way it is laid out. It is commonly said that Berlin has something for everybody, a statement which proved to be very true as the group had three days to explore the city but only saw a small fraction of the whole. It was a great experience to visit a city that is of such great importance on the international stage and I hope to someday return there to explore the rest of the city.
