  • berlin in admiration

    The first thing that must be said about Berlin--is I had it completely wrong. As I could only guess that most Americans do. The second, and more important to the visit, is I left Berlin with a sincere admiration for what I experienced. Berlin was clean, very well organized, friendly and extremely diverse.
