Wow! I was just about to write, "...and here I am, twenty-four years ago, shooting Berlin's famous Brandenburg Gate, the then-division between East and West replete with Soviet guards and a most foreboding statue." but then I thought about it and then looked it up and this isn't Brandenburg at all! It's some other war memorial, I guess, that was also by the wall. Ted or Sven, you're going to have to help me out with this one.
