Reliable Ryanair from Riga, Latvia to Berlin, Germany – a quick 1 hour 40 minute no-frill flight. Bill said it felt like a university outing because everyone was so young.
After the past week or so in winter fall was back in full force – greens, yellows, oranges and reds glistened outside the airplane’s window. Teasing us with hopes of warmer weather.
We were greeted by a balmy 34 degrees.
I was anxious to get to Berlin, the capital city of the Cold War – Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, the Wall and the art/graffiti subculture pervasive on the East side.
When I hear “Berlin” – I hear Reagan, as if it was yesterday, saying “Gorbachov – tear down this wall” – I see, graffiti.
Bill thinks it has the most diverse new architecture of any world capital.
