Fall of the Wall II

On the 9th November, the fall of the Berlin Wall twenty years ago (Jeez is it really that long ago) will be commemorated by pushing over the first of thousands of 2.5 metre high 'dominoes' that strecth for over 2km. Rumour has it that the two people in line for the honour are Lech 'The Walrus' Walesa and Mikhail 'Strawberry' Gorbachev. Seems a little predictable. Who do you think should be given the honour?

I think we should give the job to Putin - maybe he would remember that the old days have gone!

I lived in Berlin during these times ( 1979-84). Our flat was in a district called Kladow. The flat being only a few hundered yards from the wall. Interesting times.

We have a girl renting a room off us at the moment. Half Ukraine half Russian. Try telling her or her friends there is anything to celebrate. " it was better in the past " is the usual response.

I can sell you a piece of it for a very reasonable price, at a friend's discount, collectors item and it will only appreciate with time.

Last I heard he really claims to be the one responsible for the fall of the wall...his "I'm looking for..." really did it!

I think I should kick off the first domino. Why? Did I do something important back then? Nope, but it sure would be surprising :)
