One of those things I do want to see if I ever make it to Germany one of these days (Specifically the Checkpoint Charlie museum.)

I have a really small piece of the Wall around here somewhere or another, about the size of a golf ball with yellow spray paint on it. It's a pretty neat little piece of history.

When the Wall came down, I was in college and happened to have a meeting with my advisor that week, I went to see him and we were talking about it and how it would change the world and all that jazz; and his advice to me was: "Switch from learning Russian to Arabic." That was pretty sound advice in retrospect, the only sound advice he ever gave me actually, the guy was a full bore Berkley hippie fuckstick and we didn't get along well at all.

And no thread about going to Germany to see the Berlin Wall would be complete without...

I have about half a pound of the wall. Yellow, black and red spray paint over crumbly concrete.
