A year ago in "real life" (or RL), I was recovering from Achilles tendon surgery and was stuck in bed. I was now able to start really exploring in Second Life (SL) and took full advantage of the opportunity. I had heard about the 1920s Berlin Project in an education group, and thought I would go there. I had been to historical role play sims like Versailles in SL and to Romanov Russia, but for various reasons, they did not work for me. So, I traveled to Berlin to see what it was like there. What I found was a living community that has changed how I look at and teach history. Berlin is (to paraphrase my hometown's slogan) "a city that works!"
