November 9, 1989

The fall of the Berlin Wall – did it simply collapse or was it pushed?! I recall I was in Atlanta, Georgia, recovering after a tequila hangover from my birthday party a couple of days before. As I was in the US of course the nice thing was the news hardly registered, just a faint glimmer of information as me and my friend Mike Edgson got ready for a motorcycle trip of a lifetime. Yes, after selling Xmas trees and buying our bikes, we only got as far as Mexico. Though I kind of made it to South America (well Brazil, Argentia, and Paraguay) in a round-about-way.
