Germany - Jewish Museum - Final Night

Hi Gang,

Last night in Berlin. After we packed up and returned to the hotel we ventured out to the Jewish Museum in Berlin. The museum itself was beautiful in a very modern sense and the exhibits were technically very well done if multimedia is your thing. It covered the history of the Jews in Germany and Europe and the repeated pattern of persecution and assimilation. I found it surprisingly light on the Holocaust and almost feel like I missed something! After wandering back nearly to Checkpoint Charlie for a cab we headed back to the Ku'Damm and had dinner again at the Block House. Susann was again our waitress, taking Joe back to show him the t-bones, which was rather amusing. Dinner was good, but then it was time to pack and so we headed back to the hotel to get ready to depart for Frankurt. Here are some photos from last night!

Back home today .... can't wait to get a little sleep on the plane and get back home!
