Berlin, Germany - 15th January 2012

By: MA_17

Hello Mum!

Today it's Sunday and I had to get up at 4.30 am!!! Can you believe it?!?!? My host had to work and so she decided to take us with her.

Here you can see the famous Ku'damm (short form of Kurfürstendamm)! It is one of the most famous avenues in Berlin. The street takes its name from the former Kurfürsten (prince-electors) of Brandenburg. This very broad, long boulevard is full of shops, houses, hotels and restaurants. In particular, many fashion designers have their shops there! The avenue with four lines of plane trees runs for 3.5 km (2.2 mi) through the western Berlin. As you can see there isn't anybody on Sunday before 6 am except ME!

When my host finished work in the afternoon, the sun was shining and we did some sightseeing.
First we went to the Victory Column. It is a major tourist attraction to the city of Berlin. Berliners, with their fondness for giving nicknames to buildings, call the statue Goldelse, meaning something like "Golden Lizzy".

This is the Spree. It is the main river of Berlin. It is approximately 400 kilometres (250 mi) in length.

Here you can see the Haus der Kulturen der Welt ("House of the Cultures of the World" ). It is Germany's national centre for contemporary non-European art. It presents art exhibitions, theater and dance performances, concerts, author readings, films and academic conferences on non-European Visual Art and culture. This building is a gift from the United States, designed in 1957. John F. Kennedy spoke here during his June 1963 visit to West Berlin. To Berliners it is also known as the Schwangere Auster ("pregnant oyster" ).

This freestanding tower behind me is called "Carillon". It is built face to face with the Reichstag building and next to the house of the Cultures of the World. Most of the tourists don't see it, but I did. It is a large, manually played concert instrument, comprising 68 bells weighing a total of 48 metric tonnes (almost 106,000 lbs.) connected to a keyboard spanning 5½ fully chromatic octaves; the largest bell weighs 7.8 tonnes (almost 17,200 lbs.). It is one of the largest instruments of its kind in Europe and approximately the fourth largest (by number of bells) in the world.

Behind the Carillon we found some statues made of stone. They look really strange!

Then I walked to the German Bundestag which is located in the Reichstag Building. I've been here before, do you remember, Mom?

This is the Soviet War Memorial in the Tiergartenpark. It is one of several war memorials in Berlin erected by the Soviet Union to commemorate its war dead, particularly the 80,000 soldiers of the Soviet Armed Forces who died during the Battle of Berlin in April and May 1945.

My last stop was the Brandenburg Gate. It is one of the most well-known landmarks of Berlin and Germany.

It was really cold outside, but I'm happy, I have my scarf.

Love, Joe

Berlin, Germany - 18th January 2012

By: MA_17

Hello Mum,

today I left the capital. My next stop is Baden-Wurttemberg.

First I said goodbye to my hosts mice. Ok, just to the young lady called Toffee. All others were still sleeping, like they do every day. Can you see her? She looks a little bit like me: white! But she also got a grey butt and a grey neck.

Then I also said goodbye to Crawfish and Mr. Furrington.
I'll miss Crawfish a lot. I had so much fun with her. Maybe we all will meet again some day!
