Photos a bit different

There is a great app for the Iphone called Photosynth, which lets you take a 360 degree experience set of photos, and then stitches them together into a virtual-inhabitable photo.  And when these turn into a regular flattened photo, interesting results.

A selection from our first two weeks.

And my favorite, the Reichstag dome by Norman Foster, redefined.


Angel with attitude.

Debis Building

Hanging out at the Debis Building, by Renzo Piano.
I have a thing for group pictures.

First Few Days

The first few days were spent learning how the trains work, and the lay of the land around our apartments. We are located in a fairly central area, with lots to see from a political, historic, architectural, cultural, entertainment, and tourist perspective.

Here's the group on our first full day, posing in front of the Brandenberg Gate.

A quick look into some of the cool buildings on PariserPlatz.

I think we finally have the wifi issue resolved.  Yea!  I will try and catch up on some of our experiences; although the students should be doing an even better job of that.  clink on their individual links to the side to check them out.
