I have a (similar) picture of his reflection in the memorial while he is completely deep in thought, trying to comprehend how many people this really is. It's one of my favorite pictures from the whole trip. Thanks for putting this one on the 365. :-)

I lost a high heel there. The heel got stuck between the two slabs and we could never get it out. I’m sure they have removed it by now.
