This month was full of good times with the new friends that I have made and also old friends. I was lucky to go to Berlin one more time to see my family and also meet up with some friends that I had made in poland. This weekend was filled with sightseeing and kabab eating. I was also able to see for the first time the east side gallery where they have the Berlin wall with paintings and also a new museum in Potsdam which is a little out of Berlin but also one of my favorite places in the region. The next weekend was carnival which is a celebration before the start of lent mostly celebrated in the southern and western parts of Germany because of the Catholic influence. The biggest cities with carnival are Cologne as number one and then Bonn, Dusseldorf, and Mainze as second. I was fortunate to go to carnival in Cologne and we spent three days there with the parades and partying in the streets that was crazy because everyone is dressed up and having a good time. Another great thing that I was able to go to was a Champions league game!!! I went to see the second leg of the Borussia Dortmund vs Benfica round of 16. It was one of the best experiences that I have had this year and I will never forget it! I have always dreamed about going to a Champions league game and now my dream was realized and with a great show with one of my favorite teams, Dortmund, beating Benfica 4-0! I have had a great month and next month I plan to travel to Italy and Spain to visit some good friends. Until next time.
