Brickhenge

Brickhenge
The day before I left Essen, I decided I had to find this place that I'd seen in a coffee-table book about the metro area. It was too weird to pass up.

With the quadriga facing the right way.

Hollow Tooth

Hollow Tooth
Kaiser Wilhelm Gedaechtniskirche, Berlin.

It was actually quite well-preserved inside. It's a pity they didn't rebuild it after the war (it's more an eyesore than a memorial in its current state).

One of the other Tech interns, Ed, is in the lower right…

Schaffhausen Panorama
The falls on the Rhein at Schaffhausen.

Didn't realize until we got on the bus back to the train station and had to pay in Swiss francs instead of Deutschmarks that we had at some point crossed over the border unawares.

The Corinth Canal at the neck of the Pelopponesian ithsmus, originally begun by Nero but not completed until the 19th century.

It's as deep as it looks (a good 200ft down).

Blumeninsel Mainau

Blumeninsel Mainau
Yeah, yeah...like Ludwig's castles, this is one of those touristy places everyone has to go when they visit Germany.
