"Despite appearances, this is a candid, un-staged photo. I (second from left) took a group of East Germans, who grew up behind the Berlin Wall, on a tour of US National Parks. The CustomInk t-shirt features a map of our route, the car is a Trabant - the only car that was made in East Germany, and the flag on the car is the Sachsen flag - the "state" in Germany they are from. The image is significantly cleaned up and improved from what i submitted - CustomInk was a dream to work with and basically wove gold out of straw if you compare this t-shirt to the artwork i supplied. My friends LOVED the shirts!!!! They made sure they all wore them home together to show their friends who were picking them up at the airport. And you can see we wore them on the trip as well. While driving to the Grand Canyon, one of them said, "I can't believe we're driving through Arizona. Twenty-five years ago i could never have dreamed of doing this." Thanks for helping to celebrate a very special trip!"
