Global Insights Photo Contest

As part of spending last fall abroad in Prague, Czech Republic, I obviously traveled a lot, and took a lot of pictures.  This is my submission for Mt Holyoke’s Global Insights photo contest.

Berlin

October 3rd 2011 was not only celebrated as the 20th anniversary of German unification, but it also marked the end of World War I as Germany paid it’s last debt reparations imposed by the Treaty of Versailles.  On that day, as I watched the sun set over the Brandenburg Gate in the country’s capital, Berlin, I watched the sun set on that time in history.  Germany today is completely different than it was 92 years ago.  Now a world power Germany boasts a robust economy, military and political authority.  Behind Germany there is an inspirational saga in where an entire country rebuilt itself from the ground up.
