Gorby has died. 1931-2022

I took this photo exactly one week ago, while visiting Berlin. It is just one of the many murals you can see at the East Side Gallery/The Berlin Wall. I definitely feel that a huge chunk of contemporary history is closing today, and the Wind of Change, celebrated by the famous Scorpions song, needs to find another way of flowing towards better times for humanity.

Thank you and до свида́ния, Mr. Gorbachev.

  1. It was a hint of a coincidence at best. One can’t avoid getting photos of the former Communist leaders when visiting the Wall memorial.
