Soon after settling in our apartments and forcing ourselves to stay up so our jet lag does not continue, we were onto our first classes. Of course, studio where we went on a site visit to the project we would be working on all year and then we had our special topics class. Ruth Geiger was our professor, a notable journalist among other things.
Going through the German History Museum we learned about how they lived before during and after WWII. After the museum tour we walked through an actual nuclear fallout bunker, although it would save you from two weeks of contamination after the bomb hit there would be hundreds of thousands of sweaty coughing etc. people down there I think I'll take my chances with the nuclear fallout!
