East meets West
While we were walking round to the bus stop yesterday morning, Dom and I were having a conversation about east and West Germany. When she was twelve she spent a month in Germany with a friend’s father’s family. While she was there she learnt a lot about the differences between Eastern and Western Germans. I told her that when she was a year old I made sure that she and Christian were watching the TV when the Berlin wall came down. She doesn’t remember it, of course, but she’ll be able to tell her Grandchildren.
One of the boys in Dom’s year at her lycée was the first baby to be passed over the wall. Does anyone remember seeing that? He doesn’t!
