The day I arrived in Berlin was the 22nd anniversary of German Reunification Day. It was a celebration for the tearing down of the Berlin Wall and reunification of West and East Berlin. As I stood where the wall once was, all I could see was a massive party, including a Ferris wheel, bungee jumping, live music under Brandenburg Gate, and German flags everywhere.

In mid-September, my core course "Sustainability in Europe" traveled to the tiny Danish island of Ærø in the Baltic Sea. Although the entire island only has a population of 6,700 and an area of 200 square miles, it has the world’s largest solar heating plant and produces all of its energy through windmills on the island.
