During the month of December, I am setting a goal to post each day with one of my favorite somethings. It could be a favorite food, a favorite thing, a favorite person, a favorite blog, a favorite handmade thing, a favorite place... really a favorite any and everything! Join me as I review my favorites during December 2010! I'd love to read about your favorites too!
The most amazing place we lived was Berlin Germany. We were stationed there from 1987 - 1991. We went shopping in East Berlin prior to The Wall falling, we visited with escapee's, we sang Happy 200th Birthday to the city of Berlin for President Reagan, we danced on The Wall the night it "fell" and chipped at it for ages.
Berlin was the city that my parents first let me discover on my own, or with my friends. Prior to The Wall falling, we couldn't get out of the city (West Berlin was surrounded by The Wall), and my parents figured we couldn't get lost.
I think Berlin was where I discovered most of myself, and set goals to achieve later in life.
I've visited Berlin several times since The Fall, and it has changed greatly. It is definitely not the Berlin it was when I lived there. Different and wonderful too. But different all the same.
Where is your favorite city?
