Week one in Berlin is already over?!
This past week has been delightfully full of making friends, getting to know host families, figuring out the lay of the city with public transportation, and of course learning German!! After only a week, progress is tangible - everyone has improved and feels comfortable in this amazing place.
What are some of the favorite parts about Berlin already? An overwhelming majority say it's the food! There is no question that German bread is the best in the world. Using the subways, that everyone follows the rules, and the efficiency of life here came in close seconds.
We've had three excursions: a bus tour, a visit to a small, hip food market, and a day at the Potsdam Park Sanssouci. Sundays are reserved for precious free time with host families.
