Swine flu was gestern (yesterday). With the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall rapidly approaching, residents of Berlin are now being faced with a much more formidable viral infection: Cold War Nostalgia.
It’s infected hundreds of thousands here already, quite some time ago actually, and although it tends to strike harder at those living in the so-called “East”, it can hit anyone at anytime, even non-German types like you, whoever you are.
And it’s gotten much worse these days too. Or at least I have to assume as much, having read that article up there.
“It’s hard to believe that on one side of the wall there were Mercedes, and on the other side this.”
