Watching the older generation sit on the park benches in the square makes me wonder what life was like for them before the tearing down of the wall in 90. Were they separated from their friends or family members? Did they ever imagine that a day would come where they would be free? What was the difference between the E&W? How has it changed, and how has it continued to remain the same? Did people who experienced the Communist regime appreciate their freedom moreso? I wonder if that is the reason for the difference I've noticed in the people of London to the people in Germany. People in Berlin seem to treasure their time outdoors with family and friends. They don't seem as busy or like they are traveling 100 mph. Life seems more peaceful and quiet.. as if life itself was being enjoyed or as if life was meant to be enjoyed or treasured.

A saxoponist plays in the square offering his voice to the people around him. A treasure to hear.. a gift to hear the music echoing throughout the square. Roses line the park as well.. bright pink blossoms with hints of red.. Leaves are in continual change from a summer green to an orange, yellow, red, or brown. Each, when caught in the sunlight reveals an even greater or deeper color as the light enriches what the tree embodies. The sunlight, when not hidden by the clouds, also gleams and glints off the statue in the middle of the plaza.. creating multiple rainbows as it shines through the water droplets of the fountain.

lol! My German friends taught me this phrase which I generally butcher when I say it... "My German is better than your's"... :) That's all I know!:)
