    Did you get a piece of the wall mate?.....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    i had to pay a small fee for using my camera in the museum but worth every euro ,the displays are focussed on the escape attempts from east berlin to west ,some successfull some not unfortunately ,the gdr border guards had a shoot to kill policy also the wall had all sorts of inhumane devices for inflicting wounds even down to automatic firing weapons and wall mines ,a real eye opener of a place, heres a couple of ingenius ways people escaped and also referance photos from around the building ,i have taken a whole bunch more but as its eaten up most of my sunday afternoon posting them here i feel its getting time to call it a day 198.jpg235.jpg227.jpg226.jpg224.jpg215.jpg216.jpg214.jpg203.jpg
