Cold War

Teufelsberg listening station.
Berlin, Germany.
May 2010.

The NSA abandoned the listening station after the end of the Cold War. Wikipedia knows much more about this place than I do. Take a look at these pictures taken at Teufelsberg in February.

Teufelsberg is easily accessible by car, followed by a twenty minute hike through a forest and up to half an hour searching for a hole in the fence. Actually, there are two fences, and occasionally a security guard. However, if you're a tough guy who likes to spend time out in the wilderness, this should be nothing you need to worry about.

This week, there's been some interesting news on the archaeology front - an article on the Israel News website being the one I found the most exciting.

As usual, National Geographic has the most amazing upload of the week - a series of amazing photographs of a giant cave discovered last year.

I hope you have a great start into the new year!

There used to be three of these 'golf balls' up in Yorkshire, they became quite a famous landmark and remained so for many years. I think they have been dismantled now though.

Oh, what a shame! I'm very fond of abandoned places.
