Berlin Wall & Check Point Charlie
In August 2018 my son Sam & I had the opportunity to spend some time in Berlin, Germany.
To walk along pieces of the torn down Berlin Wall was surreal. To stop and read the messages and stories posted on the wall were very interesting. We went to the Berlin Wall Museum and spent time reading about history. Sam & I each bought a souvenir piece of the wall. The wall had been spray painted with much graffiti so each piece of wall is unique and comes with an authentic certificate.
We stood and had our photo taken with some German men posing as US soldiers at Check Point Charlie. Knowing we were standing on the actual spot that people were stopped and searched was haunting.
I am glad we had the opportunity to witness Berlin and all its history for ourselves. Some day I am sure we will return.
