We recently welcomed back our overseas tourists who relished the opportunity to soak up the German culture over the past school holidays. The students experienced and saw the traces of a divided Germany, into East and West Berlin, along with modern Berlin. The group attended such things as the DDR Museum (East Germany), the Bundestag in the Reichstag building (parliament) and the gardens of Sans Sauci. The students went to the left over the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, on a guided historical bicycle tour and into a concert of the Blue Man Group. Saying farewell to their German families, friends and teachers was clearly a tough time.
