Very interesting. I was just in Berlin and Dresden a few weeks ago. There's been so much reconstruction in Dresden. It's all very apparent but it's mostly very well done.

Wow, the early 1990s pics look like 1890s.

Nice to see the improvements.

I just wish all the "improvements" weren't of a corporate nature.

Me too.

I viewed the slideshow backwards to make myself feel better.

What once was a socialist paradise :sad:
