Out of the Jurisdiction: Berlin

Two symbols of Germany and Berlin.  The Brandenburg Gate and pretzels.


A bike race behind the Brandenburg Gate.


The Reichstag, with a glass dome addition signifying the new German transparency.


Gendarmenmarkt.  A plaza with a French and German church and a concert hall.


The Allied Museum highlights the contributions of the Allied Forces in the post-war period.
This card was distributed to U.S. soldiers during the Berlin Airlift.

It would have been great to meet up with Halcyon, but it was a one day race into Berlin, race around Berlin and race back from Berlin.
