my sister Annika sent this to me from her school trip to Berlin! Danke Popelbär! Lüb Dir!
Berlin is the capital city of Germany and one of the 16 states of Germany. With a population of 3.5 million people, Berlin is Germany’s largest city and is the second most populous city proper and the seventh most populous urban area in the European Union. Located in northeastern Germany on the River Spree, it is the center of the Berlin-Brandenburg Metropolitan Region, which has about 4½ million residents from over 180 nations. Due to its location in the European Plain, Berlin is influenced by a temperate seasonal climate. Around one third of the city’s area is composed of forests, parks, gardens, rivers and lakes.
Maybe some of you remember that John F. Kennedy (former president of the US) once said:
funny thing about that: there are pastries which are also called “Berliner” but I don’t thing Mr Kennedy referred to them proclaiming he was a Berliner ^_^
I send love!
