I love reading the New York Times' travel blogs. Here's one on Berlin! Also, Ryan posted this link on my wall about a pool ship (you'll have to see the picture) near where we are staying.
I recently went to Texas to visit my cousins, and now I'm home and it's August! Next weekend Ryan and I will go to Chicago to apply for our visas at the French Consulate and I will spend some time in Grand Haven. Hopefully I will see some good friends!
