Getting off of the plane in Berlin was a surreal feeling. From the signs with hundreds of words I didn’t understand to the different social styles and looks, there were too many things to take in at once. Over the course of this first week though I have slowly become accustomed to the many differences between our two societies. There are so many things that I love about this place. The food has been great, even if we’ve eaten the same breakfast of bread and butter for the past 9 days in a row with no end in site. The feel of this city is one of history yet still holding modern ideas and technologies to a high standard. Everything and everyone always seem to be busy or moving with a plan, which is quite different from many American standards. Watching a long stretch of road get torn up, repaved, and repainted, all in 48 hours and of great quality… Never happens back in the states. I have loved every minute over here in Berlin doing so many exciting and new things and experiencing it all with such an awesome group of friends. I can’t wait to see what these next few weeks have in store for me. Not to mention how many more Ferraris and Lamborghinis we’ll see… Extremely jealous.
