It was Twenty years ago today...

I was living in what was then West Germany in 1989.

The breach of the Berlin Wall started on that Thursday night, the 9th of November. We watched the whole thing on TV that Friday and then myself and one of the adjunct faculty members drove the five hours from Frankfurt to Berlin and got there early Saturday morning the 11th of November 1989.

Here are some shots of that weekend in Berlin (top photo of outbound East German traffic, an East German soldier atop the Brandenberg Gate, the guy who chipped off my piece of the Wall) and one of a younger version of myself sitting at my desk pretending to work for a living.
