This day gets stranger #20jmf

19 years ago I was in Berlin for the first time. Angie and I had gone to see Roger Waters fulfill his promise to play The Wall again only if the Berlin Wall came down.

After an amazing day: starting at the Reichstag; then some incredible scenes at the Brandenburg Gate (Russian and East German uniform on sale) to a brilliant concert in Potsdammer Platz we ended up back at the hotel, put on the TV and found the concert being broadcast.

Now, having come back from the Mauerfall commemorations from the Reichstag and striking scenes at the Brandenburg Gate and then back via Potsdammer Platz the Mauerfall is on BBC World in my hotel...
