The 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall is being celebrated in Berlin this weekend.

After its construction on 13 August 1961, it became known as the Iron Curtain dividing western Europe from the communist East.

Me too - there's a shed load from my old unit over there this weekend. According to FB they're currently having a high old time in the Irish Pub at the Europa Centre :)

I was back-packing around the world at the time the Wall came down, and was in a hostel in San Francisco. All the European travellers were clustered around my tiny Sony short-wave radio listening to the BBC news as it came in - because there wasn't a mention of those momentous events on any of the Spam media!
