Ari’s Adventures Abroad: London Edition may have come to an end (*cue audience “awww”*), but there is still one final installment before I lay the chronicling to rest! The week after my program ended, my parents and I traveled to Berlin, Germany. The main purpose of the trip was so that I could visit a concentration camp, given my keen interest in studying World War II and the Holocaust, but we also saw other aspects of the country’s history, including the longest spot where the Berlin Wall still exists in part and Checkpoint Charlie, which divided the East Berlin and West Berlin.

On Tuesday, we had a fairly simple day as we left our hotel in London and took a flight out of Heathrow airport at 12:45 p.m. After a few hours, we arrived at Waldorf Astoria Berlin and after washing up, went to dinner at a local restaurant, Litter & Wegner.
