I also want to link everyone to another person interested in cemeteries in Berlin. Emmanuelle Chaze is preparing her PhD in History about Huguenots in the British Isles during the 17th/18th centuries, but one of her side projects is with cemeteries in Berlin. She gives guided tours through Slow Travel Berlin and has a blog about monuments around the city. When I met with her we geeked over all of our favorite places to visit in the city. We both agreed that the cemeteries are strangely addicting and once you get into them it is the main highlight to look for whenever you visit a new place. Glad to know someone else is on the same wave length as me about this! You can read her blog here.
In Egypt my Christmas will look a little different, so I had a supplemental German celebration today.
