Berlin is not my actual city but a mere five hour train ride away. Tomorrow November 9, 2009 marks twenty years since "The Wall" came down. So I thought I would pay a tribute to such an event by sharing some of our weekend visit last October.
Memorial wall where The Wall once stood, haunting pictures and names of those lives lost trying to cross.
More Checkpoint Charlie
Memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe.
Memorial along the river once dividing the city of those who lost their lives swimming across.
Berlin is a huge city with so much to see, at every turn there is so much history. Due to a huge protest that shut down half the city we didn't see it all, so another trip is in the works. I felt the city was very gray and sterile with vast difference in the East and the West. If you ever have an opportunity to visit it does not disappoint.
If anything tomorrow remember how fortunate we are to have our freedom.Have a wonderful SUNDAY!
Do you know Unknown Mami? She's awesome and she created a fun Sunday theme inviting you to get out and take pictures of your city to share with the rest of us.
