Thanks again, Berlinale! We had a great time. I also wanted to give a shout-out to the hotel where we stayed, Hampton by Hilton. The room was comfy, the complimentary breakfast was delicious, and the free wi-fi came in very handy!

"What are these blocks supposed to be?" CC asked.
"They're supposed to make you think of the people who died," I answered.
"But how am I supposed to think about them?" she continued. "They're just blocks."
I thought that was such a clever question. She didn't really know how to process something so abstract. And I think that's the challenge of this memorial -- for adults and for kids.

Bye-bye, Berlin! Hope to see you again in our traveling future!
