one last thing about Berlin

Posted by mountainmelody On 8/10/2008 06:55:00 AM
In Berlin, I had the chance to learn more about the division of Germany and the Berlin Wall. It was strange to think all this had happened so recently.

I went to a museum that detailed ways people had tried (successfully and unsuccessfully) to cross the Berlin Wall. Here are just a few:
  • jump out a window
  • bomb holes in the wall
  • hide inside a loudspeaker box
  • forge a passport
  • hide inside a welding machine
  • dig a tunnel under the wall
  • hide inside a car engine
  • rig up ropes and pulleys
  • hide inside two suitcases, side by side
  • wear a fake police uniform
  • hide inside a plastic cow
