I viewed your wall page today and was reminded of my time in Germany (10 years) and dug up my chunk that I broke off of the wall at the Pottsdam rd crossing. I took it from the inside wall in the alley on the East German side. You know the saying God protects fools and drunks? That day my friends and I were pretty drunk and we wandered about 2 Klicks of no mans land looking at the towers and such only to find out the next week that the East Germans had not been able to clear all the land mines out!

I had a great time when I lived in Germany, I also got to attend the Wall Concert in Berlin. I lived in Frankfurt from about 1985 to the start of the Gulf War (1991), which I attended from start to finish. When I got back to Germany I spent one more year there and went back to the States. 

 

Just thought you might like to see another chunk floating around!

Editor's note: Note that this Wall from the East side was painted white--to make it easier to spot escapees, and graffiti might also have been a shooting offense in East Berlin!
