Christ the Redeemer on top of Mount Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro was bathed in black, red and gold on Wednesday to celebrate the anniversary of German reunification 22 years ago on, October 3, 1990.

Though full reunification was still years away, the contact between the two sides was instant and deeper than it had been in decades. A West Berliner here prepares to hand over a West German flag to East German policemen near the Brandenburg Gate.
