Der Berliner in Berlin

Me at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate On Day Zero of the RIAS Fellowship.

I’m back in Berlin. But this time I am on a professional capacity to attend the RIAS Berlin Commission fellowship, a two-week German-American journalism exchange program. I feel very privileged to be among 14 US journalists attending this exciting fall program to broaden my understanding of Berlin, Germany, and the European Union, as well as learning from American colleagues. And I hope to better tell the “story” of Berlin, a city I consider special. Although Internet access will be spotty, I will try my best to blog as much as possible. I’m also initiating Twitter updates at #RIASBerlin13. Stay tuned to my upcoming musings and pictures from this dream journey!
