Stage 2: The Autobahn

... campsite, but we had somewhere to get to... Berlin. Düsseldorf to Berlin = a rather long drive.

One really interesting thing, though, was the preserved booths that visitors would enter to have their passports stamped by East German border ...

... First we passed by check point Charlie. This is the famous crossing point between east and west Berlin during the cold war. There were two men dressed up in military uniform holding American flags and posing for pictures. I found them to be rather disrespectful with the way they handled the flag and the fact that they were rolling cigarettes while posing for pictures. We did not pay the 5 Euros for the picture. Thanks.

We had to pass through ...
