Hello all! Capt. Spanky here with another review from an amazing adventure. Now, I have to put my paw on my nose and hang my head in shame to admit this, but it has taken my human and I more than a year of living in Germany to visit its capital, Berlin. Now I wish we hadn't waited so long. I've been to many capital cities before, but nothing is quite like Berlin. It is amazing to walk the streets of Berlin, watching this insanely busy city operate, and think of all the history there. Now it is a thriving city filled with theaters, museums, restaurants and dozens of other fun things to do, but that wasn't always the case. It is a city that has survived oppression, destruction and some of the worst atrocities in history. While we were there we got a chance to see it all, witness the history through the memorials and museums, visit the sites and take part in life in modern Berlin. There are more things to see in that city than my little paws can type about, so I will leave it at this ... If you're stationed here in Germany, and never make it out to Berlin, you should be more ashamed than I was to admit it took so long to get there.
