Today is here a free day ! The Day of German Unity (German: Tag der Deutschen Einheit) is a national holiday in Germany,celebrated on October 3, which commemorates the anniversary of German reunification in 1990.
1989 / 1990 were really very exciting years for me because I am originally from East Germany ( GDR). I was born and I lived there over 28 years in the near of the city Dresden. The rest of my family is still living there (my relationship,parents,my sister).
