14: While we spent our night in Berlin, we used it as free time. We hung out with Frau's friends and her family and she showed us an outdoor bar.

51: Don't worry the guy hanging from that pole is a statue. We were walking down the street and came upon him it was cool enough to take a photo of. While we were shopping around some people had a couch chilling on the sidewalk and there were lots of police outside talking to them about it. It was entertaining actually. There was also so much neat architecture and fountains that I couldn't help but take pictures of. One night at dinner as well, which was soooo good, we had a show. Some people came to dance for us. It was really cool.

68: On the road again..this time to Dachau the concentration camp
71: Even though Dachau was only used for a work camp several died due to disease. They were made to live in close quarters. During our walk through you could still see names on the lockers they had and nail marks. There are now memorial sites and a piece of art that symbolizes their struggle. There were gas chambers but they were never used.
