On the 9th of November this year it is 25 years since the Berlin wall fell.

In Berlin this commemorated from the 7th (today) until the 9th of November with a "Lichtgrenze", a temporary border of lights. 8000 ballons with a light inside are placed along the old border in Berlin, from Pankow in the East down to the Reichstag by Brandenburg gate in the West, all together 15,3 kilometers of light. Each of the balloons have been paid for by a patron, musicians, dancers, models, professors and other people who have some kind of relation to Berlin. The patrons have all written a message or memory on their balloon and on the evening of the 9th, they will all release the balloons together, as a symbolic tearing down the wall.

An article in Berliner Morgenpost about it: http://www.morgenpost.de/berlin/berline ... Stadt.html

This is what the Lichtgrenze looks like.

And German rock star Udo Lindenberg received an honorary medal from the city of Berlin the other day. Klaus Wowereit, the mayor of Berlin gave it to him because Udo Lindenberg always believed and said to people that "the wall will not last" and for his continued struggle to tear down all the mental walls between east and west. At the ceremony Udo performed his song "Mädchen aus Ostberlin", Girl from East-Berlin. I love that song. ^_^

In memory of the people who were shot by the wall. All they wanted was the freedom to travel, visit their relatives or know something more of the world than East-Berlin.
