Germany/Poland ’23, Day 1

Arrivals and First Things

It took most of the day, but we got everyone here safe and sound (minus one piece of luggage, sadly). Despite jet-lag, dispersed landing times, and rail construction complicating our movements, we were able to find about 4 hours in the evening to do some exploring downtown. Among other sites, we checked out Alexanderplatz, Rosenstrasse Protest Memorial, Hackescher Markt, Museum Island, Humboldt University, Bebelplatz, and the Brandenburg Gate. Below are some pics.

Everyone is exhausted and needing rest. Tomorrow we will further explore by local rail and foot the sites of Berlin.

Sally, Paige, and Hannah find some Stolpersteine markers
