July 7, 1989

I was dozing on and off during the flight. Arrived in Frankfurt, hungry and tired. Saw the sun rise in the European sky through the plane window with Jessica. Short flight to West Berlin. Had a horrible lunch of cheese and butter. Had one beer a 24 ounce house pilsner.

Hotel Nord - Our Hotel

Weltkugelbrunnen or World Fountain - Breitscheidplatz

Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche - Church built 1891 - 1895 and very nearly destroyed by Allied Bombing in 1943.

Stopped at Checkpoint Charlie

(L to R) Jim O., Jacqui B., Sean P.,Meghan B., Pam G.,Melissa K.

...And later that night...

This is kind of surreal, we stayed last year at a hotel 1 block from that fountain and church (and around the corner from the erotic museum, by happen stance I swear), took a tour past checkpoint charlie (now a memorial). How very, very odd, what a small world it is!
