And, being done, thus Wall away doth go

October 7, 2012 by Kaitlin

I took a lot of pictures in Germany. You probably don’t want to see them all because they are mostly of buildings. Or street art on buildings. Or dogs.

There is, however, one kinda cool one I didn’t even remember taking until I uploaded all my pictures.

A couple looks at historic images on the border of the former wall, near Checkpoint Charlie

Mauer means wall. Swear.

These two people are standing, unknowingly, I think, on opposite sides of what used to be the Berlin Wall. The reddish bricks are where the wall used to be.

Don’t believe me? Ask the plaque.

I don’t even remember if the person on the right is a man or a woman. It doesn’t matter, and I like that too.

 

Here are three other pictures (sans people, except for one security guard) that aren’t completely mind-numbingly boring. At least, I hope not.

Ticket windows from the 1972 Munich Olympic complex. Reminds me of Disney’s Tomorrowland, or what people in the 50’s thought the future would look like.
