Berlin was, as always, a good time.
The field trip (i.e., the reason for the trip) was a success, albeit a pretty silly one. I say silly because it is not only the streets of Berlin that are filled with goons, but the political foundations, international organizations, and television stations as well. We had two jam-packed days of activity, including the Federal Foreign Office, Deutsche Welle TV, the Arab League/League of Arab States, the Heinrich Böll Foundation, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, and the IfA gallery.
I'd like to write more about the trip but lesson planning is nipping at my ankles, so I'll have to save that for later. In the meantime, I invite you to look at the few Berlin pictures that I took.
