West World

Posted by
Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 9 November 2019 in Cityscape & Urban.

30 years ago, on the 9th of November 1989, the Berlin Wall was fallen. I was in East Berlin a couple of weeks later and couldn't believe first, that this is legal to visit West Berlin with a Soviet passport.
It happened to be true, although.

I went through the border control and at the very first time it was there in front of me - the West World.
I celebrated this moment in an Irish pub with a pint of Guinness, I had only heard about until then. The beer cost almost a month stipend for me...

I think, this was a great experience for you. We Germans are very thankful for Mr. Gorbatschow and the Sowjetunion. But even for Mr. George Bush. There were a lot of great people at the right places in the right time. And you too, my friend.
