Day 6: April 26th, 2014

First day of the trip I got to sleep in. Emily and I decided not to go to the concentration camp outside of Berlin with the rest of the people. We stayed behind so we could see some more around Berlin. While the others were at the concentration camp, Emily and I decided to go back to the Tiergarten. We walked through the park and saw the Liberty Statue and Bellevue (Presidents House). Then we went to a small lake and rented a row boat for 30 minutes. That was my first time in a row boat. The technique to rowing was hard at first, but after 15 minutes I had a good grasp of it!

Later we meet the others back near the train station for Tiergarten. There we grabbed a bite to eat at a nice little restaurant near by. The restaurant was playing Micheal Jackson music; it was great! There was a flea market taking place across the street, so several of us went to look at all the items they had to offer.

In the evening we had a dinner party for our last night in Berlin. As a group we bought Dr. McGee a gift for graciously showing us around Berlin and making it a great experience. I am sad that we are leaving Berlin tomorrow, but ready for the next part of an already amazing trip!
