Well, I woke up early enough to finish up my outline for the debate. I went to breakfast and then to class. It was nice listening to all of the different debates. After lunch, Mark and I walked around Pankow, and I picked up some Crispy M&M's as a treat for myself. We had our weekly meeting, and we all discovered that the bus is actually leaving on Wednesday at 5:30 am....yikes! Looks like I'm not going to go to sleep on Tuesday, lol. Anywho, Professor Smith was kind enough to request a BBQ style dinner for tonight--however it was a 6pm. Hmmm, it was 4pm, and you really cannot do anything in 2 hours. Cat, Jess, and myself went to Alexanderplatz and grabbed a cup of coffee since I was hungry but I didn't want to eat anything before the dinner.
The dinner was really good--we had ribs, steak, and hamburgers. After dinner, Sean, Spencer, Aaron, and myself went to the TV Tower to see the sunset. We only had a 30 minute wait, and the sun was setting as soon as we got up there. It was really cool to see all of Berlin from 300m about the ground. I noticed that quite a few buildings had gardens/grass on their roofs. I will attach some photos to show you what I saw.
I love Berlin so much! I am so glad I was able to take this trip. I've met so many great people, saw so many things, and made lots of new memories. I am sad that I am leaving this wonderful city, but I do miss my family, dog, and boyfriend....and also ice and air conditioning haha. I was expecting it to be a bigger culture shock, but Berlin isn't that much different than Georgia. I can notice quite a few differences, but I still love it.
Berlin, until next time! :)
