Berlin Wall remains

Berlin Wall

Earlier this month we finally passed the point in history in which the Berlin Wall has been down for more time than it was up. A few small parts are still up though. Today’s photo comes from last summer.

I thought the number of gay people on the plane from Copenhagen to Berlin this past July was far more than typical. I didn’t realize until I’d been in Berlin for a couple days that it was Gay Pride weekend. In Berlin they call it Christopher Street Day (CSD). About a half million people turned out for the parade. This guy was an hour or so early.

Ackerstraße (Berlin Wall Memorial)

The Berlin Wall ran along Bernauer Straße and closed Ackerstraße at the corner when it was built in 1961. The official demolition of the border fortifications began in June 1990 at the corner of Bernauer Straße and Ackerstraße.
