Well, I was not sure if I would be able to update this while was traveling. I was unsure of Internet availability, but I was most unsure of my energy level. Especially Yesterday. We left the US at about 6:00 PM on Saturday 9/15 and we arrived in Paris at 7:40 AM (Europe time). So it made sense that we should have slept on the plane - but that did not happen. Actually, I did not sleep from about 6:30 AM Saturday until about 5:00 PM Sunday...!
But, as you can see, it was worth it. We got to Berlin, muddled our way from the airport to the hotel, and then we went out again to see the Brandenburg Gate, and the Reichstag. I am so glad that I bought the two new lenses before I went.
