East Side Gallery is a deteriorating stretch of the Berlin Wall (or Berliner Mauer) that currently stands as the largest open air gallery in the world. According to Wikipedia, anyway. Approximately 106 artworks by artists from all over the world adorn the old barrier. Some political, some whimsical but almost all entirely hopeful. While I didn't write on or chip away at the wall as so many tourists seem to do, I touched it. Like, actually totally touched it.
