my parents arrive in Berlin!

 My parents arrived today in Berlin! After meeting them at the airport, and dropping off the luggage, we headed out into the city to see some sights. First: Gendarmenmarkt, then Bebelplatz, the Humboldt University, Neue Wache, Museum Island...It was hot. 32 degrees C, which is about 90. We took a break for some water and boat-watching along the Spree. When we headed to Schloss Charlottenburg, there was a freak thunderstorm and a little rain, which helped cool things down. The park was so beautiful and it was a nice change of scenery from the loud city center. We ended the evening with a Schnitzel dinner at Schnitzelei.

Neue Wache

Berliner Dom and Fernsehturm (TV tower)

 Below you can see people cooling off in the shade on Museum Island

they don't even look jet lagged! :) Having a great time!
