Berlin 2001

When Marie went around the world 20 years ago, we met up with her in Berlin. This was before I had a blog but I did have a website and posted a summary of that trip to Europe. I linked to a photo hosting site that has since been bought out so most of my pictures are now unseen. Here is one of the Reichstag.

I don't know these folks standing in front of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. The church was badly damaged in World War II and they kept some of the bombed-out section as a memorial. It is a moving reminder of the tragedy of war.

A friend of Marie's paid a visit while we were there, and we all went on a tour by boat.
