Return to Berlin, August 1964 and August 2008

Photos from a week's vacation in Berlin. I've also included scans of some black and white pictures I took with my Minox on a visit in 1964. (If you're not familiar with this tiny camera, see the photo below of the Minox concealed in a necktie at the Stasi Museum.)

The contrasts between 2008 and 1964 are, not surprisingly, quite remarkable.
