Berliner stories /40

The balloon runner

Lamps and balloons

A moment of contemplation

The crowds are flocking in for the citizen's festival to celebrate the fall of the wall 25 years ago

Public rehearsal near the Brandenburger Tor with Daniel Barenboim

Where to go during the festival?

Some people were doing difficult

There was more police than demonstrators 

Lots and lots of people attended the closing ceremony of today's remembrance and celebrations 

One by one the ballons of the border of light were set free, while the Staatskapelle Berlin and the State Opera Chorus played the Ode to Joy of Beethoven's 9th symphony on stage at the Brandenburg Gate, under the direction of Danile Barenboim.

The end of the party
