In Berlin we saw the TV Tower which is the tallest tower in the European union. And while we were there they had a carnival and they had bungee jumping were you got to jump on a trampoline while you were connected to bungee cords. We also had curry wurst. The Brandenburg gate is a special part of Germany.

When we went to see the Berlin wall it was all covered with gum,  Before 1989, when you crossed the wall you’d have freedom. But they had men with guns so while you try to cross the men would try to shoot you. Now that the wall is down, people are free to cross.

We also went to a WW I museum. They gave us bracelets and when you scanned the bracelets it would tell to write your name in the computer. At the end of the museum it would tell you how many people died under your name. In WW I, 24 people named Friend died.

The Louvre. If you don’t know what the Louvre it’s one of the largest art museum in the world. I hate art museums but since my Aunt was there we had a blast. There was a sheet of paper that had the top 6 things to see on each floor. We found all of them except one that was too far away and my favorite was The Raft Of Medusa because it was dark and I liked the Raft. And the hardest one to find was the St .Louis metal basin. And if you go, go with your Aunt
