San Diego!

Thanks to Martin Luther King, the last Monday was an official holiday and I spent the long weekend in San Diego - at least from Saturday afternoon until Monday noon because it takes about six hours to go there by train. But the trip is absolutely worth it since the railroads are directly at the Pacific! The view is fantastic! (Also, the seats are larger than the usual ICE seats in Germany and you've got more space.)

USS Midway Museum.
San Diego is famous for surfing and lots of fun beach activities, but since it was a bit cold and the beaches are actually in La Jolla which is outside San Diego, we visited the USS Midway Museum. The USS Midway is an old aircraft carrier which was alive during the Cold War. Now you can actually walk on the carrier and see lots of small airplanes which were stored on the carrier. It's impressive what people can make up to destroy others.
