June 22 1990---Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin dismantled!!

Impossible to believe that was 30 years ago!!

I was attending a 1 month seminar in Munich for teachers of German run by the U of Washington.

Late in the seminar we slent a few days in Berlin. It was absolutely wild!

The streets were packed with people, many from the former East Germany. People were still picking out pieces of the Wall. I tried but found the material way too hard. Ended up buying a bitty piece embedded in glass?plastic?. There were warnings to protect ourselves from the asbestos in the material that the Soviets had used to build the Wall when they started building it on August 13 1961
