The flea market was at Mauer Park which once divided the two Berlins. It was huge and there
We then headed clear across town (the subway makes it so easy) to see the Parade of Cultures which is an annual event. The subway was quite packed and thousands of people lined the streets.
It was drizzly at times before the parade started and the wind was like our Westerly winds...blows right through you. It was about 8 today, a far cry from the 20's we had most of the trip but better than the snow we had the first day.
There were some fantastic groups..all were so enthusiastic! Some made me shiver as they had hardly any clothes on!
This group had about 100 performers!
And even groups of children took part.
We then took the subway back to the area of our hotel. We walked past what we think was part of the Berlin Wall but as were trying to beat the rain we weren't sure.
This sculpture, "Balancing Act" commemorates the 50th anniversary of the laying of the foundation stones for the Axel Springer Publishing building in the background. The building was located on the border of the Soviet occupied sector of Berlin and became a lighthouse of the free West. Parts of the Berlin Wall are contained in the sculpture, built in 2009, 20 years after the fall of the wall.
