Liza's Trip Journal

The photos on this page are the result of scanning negatives over 18 years after the fact. So...the quality isn't stellar, but gives you an idea of the trip. The itinerary was "east block" - albeit after the wall came down - so Berlin, Leipzig in "east" Germany, Prague in the Czech Republic, and Budapest in Hungary.
