I have quite a bit of catching up to do. Since the last time I have written, I have traveled to Munich, I have visited a concentration camp, and I have returned to California. I'll write about these experiences soon, but as today is the 50th anniversary of the building of the Berlin Wall, I wanted to respond to an article I saw on Wednesday, which can be found here.

Apparently, my mom heard the report on the radio, and she said some political lady (she said the mayor, but Wowereit is male, I think she's talking about Angela Merkel) was quoted as saying the plan is ridiculous.

Judy! I really enjoyed reading your article. I read about the 50th anniversary and the events taking place in the city (sad i had to miss them) but it totally shocked me that they are thinking of rebuilding parts of the wall. The fact that they would even consider building up a symbol of one of the darkest times in German history is ludacris. It's truly sad that the government did not give it more thought and to examine how potentially building this wall would reopen old wounds...thanks for sharing!

I think I've been adapting pretty well, although I haven't even been back a full week, so we'll have to see how it goes. Thank you for asking!
