Travelogue: European Roadtrip Part 2 (Berlin, Germany)

Part 1 - Hamburg, Germany 
We felt right at home the very minute we arrived in Berlin.   
The city is so clean, the people are so nice, the cost of living is reasonable, 
and there's so much history in its every corner. 
We fell so in love with the city and were so close to shouting out in unison, "Ich bin ein Berliner!".  
But we're no JFK, so we just contented ourselves to taking photos.    

The beautiful Berliner Dom is the seat of the Protestant Evangelical Congregationsberliner dom berliner dom (background) berliner dom

 Reichstag, the seat of the German Parliament reichstag
Brandenburg Gate where President Reagan famously said, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" pariser platz

 The Berlin Wall

Holocaust Memorial 
We actually visited a concentration camp prior to this but I just can't bear to post those photos...

We are such Jason Bourne fanatics, and so decided to visit a few landmarks from the movie.
 The World Clock where Nicky waits for Bourne, as instructed by him.

Alexanderplatz where the scene were there was a demonstration and Nicky boarded a tram.

Just to complete our Bourne in Berlin obsession, we stayed at The Westin Grand Berlin
where Bourne tracked Pamela Landy and where Abbott committed suicide towards the end of the movie.
