Day 17

The last blog already. Tomorrow we fly back to Bremen via Chicago and Schiphol. But first today the last part. We take it easy in the morning, and after noon we go to the last planned place. The Martin Luther King Jr. National Park. This is at the place where he was born, at the church where he preached, and also the place where he is buried. i.e. still a very impressive place. We first go to the Visitor Center where an exhibition about the man has been set up, then we walk to his birthplace, and finally to his grave. We go back to the apartment where Bernard and Ria stay and Bene and Margreet visit a Starbucks. I won’t elaborate too much on this trip, but I can tell you that it took about an hour and a half, and that we saw most of the Marriot and Hilton hotel. We close the blog with this, and hope that you have enjoyed our trip as much as we have experienced it ourselves.

The video of the day, a protestsong by Elvis, reffering to Martin Luther King’s “I have a Dream” speech, and recorded some two months after his assassination:
