Everyone has arrived safe and sound in Berlin, after many hours of traveling. We all navigated very well from Tegel airport to our campus and are now settling into our dorms, taking showers, unpacking, etc. before meeting up to go out for dinner together and explore the area. I will post pictures of the group soon. It is sunny, clear and almost 3 pm here, with Vermont time at 8:30 a.m.Illustration by Martin Schwartz, Berlin
