Everyone wants to go to Berlin

Berlin is on just about everyone's list of cities they want to visit. Is it on your list?

One of the many events I remember about Berlin is seeing the news broadcast when the Berlin Wall dividing it into East and West was built back in 1961. Then I remember watching when the gates in the Berlin Wall were opened in 1989 and the Wall fell.
Below is a photograph from Wikipedia of a crane removing part of the wall.

Let's take a step away from the history books and enjoy Berlin now in the 21st Century. First of all we will appreciate the beautiful forests and lakes throughout the Berlin region.

Sacramento is a City of Nuggets

Visiting Sacramento you will learn it is full of priceless history and how it truly lives up to the motto "Indomitable City".
RISING ABOVE: Building the indomitable city

Another nugget that impressed me about Sacramento are the community gardens throughout the city.
For example, Fremont Community Garden is completely organic and they even have an orchard. The benefits of working together as a community in the garden is commented about in this video:

My favorite nugget in Sacramento is the World Peace Rose Garden

This garden is part of an International World Peace Rose Garden organization.
You can visit the rose gardens all promoting international peace.

There is one more nugget I hope everyone appreciates and takes advantage of and that is Sacramento Free Museum Day every February. I love this event because it lets everyone enjoy a little culture regardless of income.

Just because the gold rush is over doesn't mean you won't find nuggets of higher value in Sacramento, California.

Thank you for following my recipe for Sausage and Leek Soup to Sacramento!
