today we went to the German History Museum. among many other interesting things there we saw a very cool map. it was a relief map of europe and it had the changing country borders projected onto it dating back to the roman times and cycling up to the present year. you can imagine how long Dave and i stood and watched it. yeah, twice through.
then in the evening we went out to Schloss Charlottenburg. it is a really cool palace in the western part of Berlin. we went there to see an amazing concert with a piano and string quartet. other than it being unbearably hot the music was beautiful.
