Other People Visit Berlin

I didn't attend the gigantic Fulbright conference in Berlin, but Jesse, Alex, Megan, Hubert, Susan, and some of our Slovak acquaintances did. I gather the conversations and chance to roam around the city (Indian food, Nazis, Holocaust memorial) were the best part. I'm not certain what to think of the transparent bathrooms.
Anyway, you can see some of the shocking photos here: Living in SK: DeutschLand Part I and (somewhat less Berlin-focused) Deutschland Part II.
Jesse also has some shocking photos, along with hilarious commentary.
Susan has some less startling material, but also worthwhile viewing, in Off to Berlin and Berlin Part 2.
And, just to go back in time a bit, I see that Kylowna has posted some nice photos of the Velké Bílovice trip.
As for me, I'm just sitting on my couch in Prague and wondering whether to attempt supper or just turn into a dustball.

Gee, those of us in Russia weren't even invited to the party! Harumph!

I don't supposed the people in Africa were either. This is probably a response to the Russian desire to be Asiatic rather than European. And someone else will cater to their opposing desire to be European rather than Asiatic.

Well, there were a few concerns about the representation of some other, more European commissions, as well. On a panel of "non-German" representatives--which basically amounted to the "Other" panel--there was mostly northern Europe (CR, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and even Hungary) and the west (Spain), and this was cause for not a bit of grumbling among the Italians et al.

So the Berlin conference basically invited all the European groups? Where was their eastern cutoff, I wonder? Poland-Slovakia-Hungary-Romania? (Does Romania have a Fulbright group?)
