Back in the GDR.













I spent the weekend in Berlin. I was staying in the old East Berlin district, Prenzlauer Berg. This was about a 20 min walk to the Alexanderplatz, where the Ferneshtrum/television tower is. If you’ve seen the film Goodbye Lenin then you’ll be familiar with the tower from there. The weather on Saturday was a thick blanket of grey and drizzle. So, walking around and doing the tourist thing; visiting parts of the Berlin Wall and so forth gave the place an added oppressive atmosphere... Luckily, the Sunday was sunny and pretty much T-shirt weather, making it quite an interesting juxtaposition.
