What yesterday was hard is impossible today

20 years ago it was really hard to go from East Berlin to West Berlin. In all these years, many things have changed. The Lehrter Bahnhof is today the biggest train station in the world, and in the Friedrichstrasse station there is a Burger King.

But ironically, today is impossible to make that trip, since the S-Bahn in Berlin is working just on a third of its capacity due to technical revisions on most of the trains, and the closed the traffic between East and West.
