and everything changed

The next day I woke up and had a quick breakfast before jumping on the U Bahn to go to the East Side Gallery.  The introduction page of my guide book to Berlin says this is not a beautiful city this is a city that has been through so much that it seeps from each space.

The East Side Gallery is a remaining part of the wall that’s been left for artists to use as a canvas.  I took about 298749874 photos:

    WOW– strong graphic mural images … and cool scene shots of this unexpected city exploration… plus the piroges sounded good!

    You have cousins who have spent time in Germany, speak German… Whitney speaks German and she and her husband lived there for maybe a couple fo years and I think had their first child there, too?? ??1 I can find out contact info if you wish it… Also- Tom and Dbby had a German exchange student living with them for about a year .. not sure but he may be in Berling.. can find out that too .. I remember meeting him and he seemed to be quite a hoot…

    the east gallery is amazing. i love the idea of it (reclaiming something so awful and turning into a place of self expression) and the images on the wall. incredible and i am jealous that you got to see it in person.
