Berlin 1989

I recently joined a Berlin Expats group on Facebook to meet some new people and give advice to newbies since I’ve been living here for 4 years now and I strolled upon a great post by a guy called Andrew. He was in Berlin in 1989 when the wall came down, however he wasn’t alone, he brought his trusty camera along with him and made a great piece of history.

Before you ask, I got his permission to post the gallery on my website.
