The last stop on our tour of Central & Eastern Europe was Berlin, Germany. Germany’s a fascinating place … particularly Berlin. Its unique history has really shaped a very different modern world than what I have grown accustomed to. When you really think about a place that was governed by a Nazi dictator and had a wall separating its people from the evil ideas of democracy, it’s not surprising. But I just couldn’t shake the haunting suspicion that everywhere I went, the Gestapo was lurking, watching our every move.
Parts of the Berlin wall are still up in its original location, but other sections have been painted and dispersed throughout the city.
There’s a strong juxtaposition between the old and new look of the city. I really like the Berlin skyline by night.
