Berlin is an amazing place... We stayed with our friends Heike & Marco while we were there.

They live on the old East side and told us lots of stories about the Wall and how things were.

We managed to visit a lot of interesting places while we were there, including the amazing Sanssouci Palace at Potsdam.

Berlin is a huge city, it has so much building work going on all over. Everywhere you look you'll find cranes building one thing or another.

Berlin really is a very different city, so different to all the other European cities we visited. It really has a life of its own.

    My German friends also had a laugh at the ideas, we were not laughing at the reason why these people did what they did, but how they did it. :) We heard first hand stories of the things people went through... :(

    Mmm, so you had a laugh at some of the escape ideas at the Haus am Checkpoint Charlie? I guess you did not really understand it then...

    What a small world ! We were there in '95 on a self-drive. Potsdamer Platz was still bare. Fascinating place.You've led a very interesting life. Well done. Great pages.
