Berlin 2006 Page One

I got back from Germany a few days ago. Berlin is very interesting. Jimby has added the photos to show you what I did. Of course, we went to the Brandenburg Gate, and I saw the Reichstag.

There is a big TV tower in central Berlin and some beautiful buildings that are art museums. I hope I do not upset any Jimby's from Germany but I had heard about The State Library of Berlin (Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin), so I went to check it out. It's a big, ugly, modern building with a lot books. I'm not sure what's so special about it.

I walked around the city and saw all sorts of interesting things.

I saw some bears in the park. They weren't in the zoo. They were just in a neighborhood park. Then I kept seeing shops with bananas in the window. I decided to check this out in closer detail. One place had an exhibit called Affentheater, "Monkey Theater." That's for me! So, I went in and got information.

It turns out that it was a museum exhibit on the history of the zoo. I also had my photo taken with two giants who were in a park. The one sitting down is named Karl Marx. I didn't remember him being one of the Marx brothers. They say he was an economist of sorts and not a comedian. He didn't look very funny to me.

Berlin has a lot of neat things going: bears, bananas, monkey theater, interesting buildings. It's fun -- a little dirty -- but fun.
