Berlin. While studying in Berlin about 30 years ago I stood near this "Quadriga" many times, looking at it from just behind the western side of the Berlin wall. The world stopped right there and the country behind the wall was an unknown, mysterious, frightening and strange no man's land. I imagined how great it would be if one could continue walking on under the Brandenburg Gate and along the street "Unter den Linden". I cannot describe the strirring emotions I had when visiting this spot again these last days, actually walking through the gate and onwards, able to explore the formerly forbidden territory.
