We Saw THAT Wall.


No more messing with your heads.

No more fun and games.

No more guessing!

I am sorry for my absence but we were taking in the sights of a city that not so long ago we would not have been able to amble about so freely in.

Worshipblues welcomes aboard our rickety old tour bus, hop on for our view of ......

BERLIN.


I thought that the wall would be as good a place as any to kick off the Worshipblues tour. That infamous, bitter wound of a wall.



Once it tore a City in two. It was a vast and hated prison wall. The world watched as huge sections of the wall were torn asunder in November of 1989.




Today it stands as a reminder of the not so distant past and has been turned into the largest street gallery in Europe. These were our favourite sections of the Eastside Gallery.









Berlin is an interesting city with a fascinating history I look forward to sharing more thoughts and images with you soon.

  3. Oh wow! I was wondering where you'd ventured off to! A beautiful set of shots. I hope you did have a great time! I've never visited Berlin before, must put it on my list of places to go.

    Such a coincidence too..I was just thinking about W and E. Germany this morning after spying a cardboard box outside my boyfriend's family home which contained some kind of decorating paint/lacquer - which said in big letters 'Product of W Germany". It took me a few seconds actually process what it said!
