On Sundays in Freidrichshain, East Berlin, the flea market at Boxhagenerplatz is a crowded, entertaining and eclectic experience. In addition to the widely diverse items for sale, buskers entertain, and nearby restaurants, cafes and bars beckon.
Everywhere, outside dining, strolling, bike riding.
Politics remains an issue. (But, why in English?)
Buildings become a canvas.
What remains of the Berlin wall that divided the city into east and west until 1989 is another canvas.
An escapee from East Berlin crossing the wall. Many in the crowd wave goodbye.
Should a visitor go west of the wall?
