BERLIN BEFORE THE WALL CAME DOWN-Been There - Stood and watched the Eternal Flame of Communism burn as I ate my cardboard flavored chocolate bar in the "grey-est" city I had ever seen-East Berlin pre-freedom. It was drab, grey, and muted. And the people seemed sad, oppressed, and a bit scared. The day I visited, someone successfully hot-air ballooned out over the wall into West Germany. A big deal. But all the others were still "locked-up" inside. Glad you are all out and free with us now!
