Berlin

I think I’ve mentioned before that my favorite part of Berlin was the Fat Tire Bike Tour.  It’s been something on my list to do for a long time, and I’m so glad that Susan, who doesn’t love to ride her bike, was willing to go with me.  It was about a 5 hour ride and we saw lots of fun things.

Ampelmann — the East German cross walk symbol (he’s plump and wearing a hat, like all good communists should)

Berlin was an amazing city.  So glad we got to spend a few days there.
