Adventures in Berlin, part 1

I flew into Berlin a few days before Kelly did, so that I could do some research-y things in the city before we took the train (er, trains) to the lovely little town of Wernigerode in the Harz mountains (about a 3-hour journey south-west of Berlin). Here are a few more random photos from the first few days...Wernigerode tomorrow!

Found outside a random flower shop.



The courtyard outside the German Resistance Memorial Center. It was in this courtyard that Claus von Stauffenberg and others involved in the plot to kill Hitler were summarily executed. (More information on the July 20th plot at Wikipedia.)

And on a much lighter note...

A giraffe made all of legos at the Sony Center, near Potsdamer Platz.

Sir Pooh would love the Lego giraffe.

What is growing in the pots outside the random flower shop?

I am a big fan of the Lego giraffe.

One Christmas we built the entire Hogwarts castle on a collapsible table...bad idea.
