Visit to the Reichstag

By Y.Muriel

You can heard me in the online voice record:

This is a photo of me the day I walked up one of the interior spiral ramps which were placed in a glass dome, constructed on the top of the rebuilt Reichstag building. This parliament building which is located in Berlin was heavily damaged in the Second World War. After the fall of the Wall, there was a reconstruction of the building as the new German parliament by the architect Norman Foster, including a new glass dome, to symbolize the reunification of Germany.

The picture was taken by my husband, who was so excited, that as soon as we got into the building, he started taking pictures and when we arrived at the top of the glass dome, he asked me to stand in front of the mirrored cone which is used for lighting and ventilating the plenary room. So I was smiling on the foreground of the picture with green shorts while on the background there were a lot of people with light clothes looking out the panoramic view of the surrounding Berlin cityscape. On the right, there was also a friend who had brown hair and fair complexion. He was wearing a black and white striped t-shirt with black shorts, a camera around his neck and headphones.

Finally, we reached the roof of the building which was an observation platform where we had a bird’s eye view of the city. I had been waiting for this moment since I was twenty years old! So I share this photo on Instagram to remind this special moment.
