The Wall

I remember sitting in front of our television and watching the fall of the Berlin Wall. I was in high school at the time and I distinctly remember thinking that I was watching history being made and understood that what was happening was significant. Since that day twenty-five years ago I've studied history and have come to understand just how significant that act really was. But walking along the wall in Berlin brought the significance to a whole other level.

I'll write more about the history of the wall in a future post, but in the meantime here are some pictures I took as I walked along the East Side Gallery in Berlin and experienced the power of the Wall for myself. The artwork is more expressive than words could ever be yet my pictures can't capture the feeling of experiencing it in person.


  1. Thank you for posting. The picture tells a thousand word-story is true especially in the case of the art work here. I'm interested to read your impressions and to know some of the history :)

  2. Surprised at how much English language is used here - for the benefit of tourists?
