The edited version of the show with Rina talking about her experiences homeschooling in Germany is finally available. It is much better without all the dead air. At the start, I talk a little about my experience in Germany and how my first visit to Berlin affected me. I wanted to share a few of my pictures, but seem to only have one uploaded here on my blog. Next weekend, I’ll try to upload some more for those of you who are curious. This is not part of the monument I referenced, but is graffiti across the street from where the wall used to be.
Across the top in red, it reads “At some time, every wall falls.” I believe it was written before the wall actually fell. And this cartoon illustrates the difficulty in unification I mentioned:
The little Ziggy-like figure with the night cap is known as “Der Deutsche Michel” (The German Michel) and is a sort of symbol of the nation akin to Uncle Sam here. The problem of unification is well represented here as there are two Deutsche Michel.
