Checkpoint Charlie

The only crossover between East and West Berlin through the Berlin Wall, where spy exchanges took place.

A chilling location, but sadly now a tacky tourist hot spot replete with KFC, McDonald’s and Starbucks.

What a pity the area could not have been left as it was.

A divided city, no longer divided.

The only divided city left in the world is Nicosia, a divided city on a divided island. The north of Cyprus illegally occupied by Turkey.
