Berlin Wall -- The Embarrassing History

The Berlin Wall might be one of the three most famous walls in the world (The other two are The Great Wall, and the Wall of Cry in Jerusalem) . So the most important target of my trip to Berlin is to visit the remains of this famous wall.

Almost 30 min's walk under the horrible sunshine, just to find a piece of wall less than 100 metres long, and no more than 10 cm thick. That's really disappointing. The only photo I could take is a bronze label on the ground, showing the original position of the wall
During the 38 years' history of this wall, there were so may people dying, being separated, and so many storied to be told about the wall. If the collapse of this wall labels the end of an era, then why on earth this era should ever begin?
