Final Days Abroad

Yesterday I went to see Luca Bogoni, an Italian graphic designer and illustrator well known for his illustrations for Moleskine.  I chose him as the subject for my final project, which I will post once my professor has approved and finalized it.  I was so excited when he emailed me back and was interested in my project.  Bogoni and I chatted about his work and life, while I took pictures of him and his studio.  It was an honor to meet such a great artist — he was very candid, always willing to answer my questions.

Afterwards, I met up with the group to go to der Reichstag. The juxtaposition of the building was just incredible: the traditional, stone facade compared to the modern, glass interior.  The views from the top were great as well; we could see the western and eastern most parts of the city.  We’ll be seeing that again tonight from the TV tower, except at dark.

I can’t believe I leave tomorrow.  Berlin is a wonderful city with, as I said once before, so much history and diversity.  I’m excited to go home to see my family, fiance and friends.  I’ve made some great friends here though, most of whom I probably won’t see again.  Bittersweet.  It’ll be back to the real world with thesis defending and job hunting.  It’s been a wonderful end-of-grad-school trip.
