Although this castle was originally destroyed in World War II, it was rebuilt and now serves as .. yes, a shopping mall.
This video taken from within the Braunschweig dome mentioned in my last post. I’m not sure how good the lighting was, so have no clue how it actually came out.
One thing that really impressed me though is the acoustics of the dome. It’s one of those places you wouldn’t want to whisper something in as if you were to do so, people on the other side could probably hear it as if you were standing next to them.

Braunschweig has a very famous and very old dome. When I started taking this video, I thought it was the actual dome we were videoing. Of course this was not the case as we were too far away, but I think we got some nice video of some other old buildings including Braunschweig’s town hall.

As mentioned above, i attempted taking this video, but half way through, handed the iPhone off to another person. Anyway, hopefully that will at least explain any confusion in the video.
Some observations made concerning people in the Hannover train station. I recorded this on my way to meet someone I had known while an exchange student in 1992.

Earlier today, we visited Schloss Marienburg , a near by castle. Assuming I’m doing this right, a very big assumption in deed, the following should be photos taken while at the castle. If I’m doing this wrong, well, I don’t know what will happen.
Earlier today, we visited a near-by castle, the Schloss Marienburg. I
had Jenn read a brief pamphlet describing a brief history of the
castle. I’ll post more photos and commentary later, but suffice it to
say that we all had a wonderful time and got a lot out of the
