All in all it’s just another brick in the wall.
East Side Gallery and Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin,Germany.
When I booked a ticket to Berlin about the only thing I knew that was there was the Berlin Wall. And I also knew that that was torn down some time ago. So I guess I didn’t really know anything here.
A stretch of the wall is still up and used as an art installation called East Side Gallery. And I went there on the morning of my second day before I went to the museum of contemporary art.
And then I went to what seemed like the other side of Berlin to the documentation center that had more stuff about the Wall.
And today I went to the other other side of Berlin to check out Checkpoint Charlie, the crossing point in the Berlin Wall between the East and West. Or, what has become kind of a tourist trap. (But we all know I love me some tourist traps.)
P.S. When I went to look up the title of this post to make sure I got it right I saw this and burst out crying in the hostel lobby…
