We then had more free time so we went to the Holocaust Memorial and Museum and also to a watch party/festival where they were watching the ⚽️ soccer ⚽️ game between πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ Germany and South Korea. We then had dinner and came back to the hotel to pack and prep for our departure tomorrow. πŸ›„We will have some free time in the morning before we leave.
