W e have done several very interesting things in our first two weeks.  First, we were given a guided tour from one of the professors at CityLab:Berlin in Germany.  He told us about the history of Berlin and the many good and bad times in the city. Most impressive was the Brandenberg Gate, its history, going back to before Napoleon, the Third Reich, Joseph Stalin, and the Berlin Wall.
