Berlin Studytrip! #2

Thursday, 18th November
Today it’s been Museum and zoo  time!

We saw a lot of cool stuff(animals) in the zoo, an I took a ton of  pictures! 
here see some :D 

They had a lot of monkeys! I heart them! also, Berlin Zoo has no fences, only like.. deep holes to make for a barrier to keep the cuties in Ö 

Then we went to an art museum having an exhibition centering on German expressionism in the early 1900s. Very inspiring and skilled artists, very good material for both my and Natacha’s art investigation books.
From there on we went on to a museum for the allied (USA, France and Britain) right after WW2. It told a lot about how they had divided Berlin, and how respectively the rulers of the 4 sectors, 3 in west, the soviet in east, treated the Berlinian citizens.
On the way home from there we got caught in Traffic jam. Bad traffic jam. So it took us more or less an hour to get back when it took us like 20 minutes to get there. Of my.

Great political discussion over burger and fries! Left wing VS Right wing: that was close to get ugly there. But very educational in its own way.
In the evening Maya and I went to the other end of town with a girl from 3.i. it was really nice, but we ended up going home by cap as the 3.i-girl didn’t want to walk home. So I ended up spending way too much money on caps that night.

We saw the east side gallery which is a bunch of paintings painted on a long piece of the wall. 

They’re all really nice and very inspiring, all of them using different methods and styles.

"The wall" which one is it?

Famous piece, but I don't remember who's on it.
some world leaders or something ^^''
 From there on we went to a prison which was used under the Stalin regime after the war. It was a horrible but yet very exiting historical place. It’s also a piece of history that isn’t “dead” yet, in the way that the victims still lives.
It was filled with torture chambers and other disgusting rooms, and everything has been set to drive the prisoners mad in some way or the other.

We came home early and Maya and I decided to go see the new Harry Potter movie, but I wanted to go to a J-pop culture store called Neo Tokyo first, so we split up and were supposed to meet in the hotel.
But it was impossible to find Maya, so Henriette and I ended up talking about who knows what for an hour or so.
BUT! Maya came home, and we went to see the first part of the 7th movie, which took me with storm, and as usual I cried like a baby!! 
good movie, they did well *pat pat*
other pictures/ events:
The Sony Center which is a outdoor mall
we watched HP7 pt.1 here in Cinemaxx

Students playing in the metro!

my what a great construction! love love loved it!
it was originally intended to be build in Iron and glass, but since Hitler wanted it to make a magnificent ruin, if it's still there in 1000 years time, he wanted to build it in stone. Of course there were a lot of discussions about this matter, but in the end, as you can see, Hitler got his way.

not much to say there, so I'm just gonna put in pics :D 

Lots of space!! lots of seats! (btw, Hitler build this!)

We also saw a pretty protestant church! 

 Sunday we just got in the bus and drove home. I slept most of the way comfortable in my Kigurumi *heart*
