The Fall of The Berlin Wall

Monday, November 09, 2009

The Official Travel Notes Blog

When East Germans were squeezing themselves through cracks in the Berlin Wall, twenty years ago today, I was in Colombia enjoying the preparations for Cartagena's 'independence festivities'; oblivious to their cries of joy.

Even though chinks in the Iron Curtain appeared at the Hungary/Austria border - near Sopron - in August of 1989, I would wait until April, 1992 before I visited the former Soviet Republics; for a tour around what had recently become the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

I don't think I'd have stayed in Europe, even if I could have predicted the events of 9th November, 1989 but I would like to visit North Korea before the Korean peninsula is reunified.
