Summer Holiday – Stage 5 – Ich bin ein Berliner, Watkins

Summer Holiday – Stage 5 – Ich bin ein Berliner, Watkins!

We are now in Germany’s capital, Berlin. It is a splendid place. I once went out with a German girl called Emma. When I say went out that is just a bit of an exaggeration. We met on a train. She offered me a cigarette. She got out at the next station. Ah, those were the days. Watkins tells me that he once climbed over the Berlin Wall. This is his exaggerated way of stating that he once tripped over a brick. The tour bus beckons. Here is the German National Anthem. Watkins is wearing his lederhosen and I am waving a little national flag. Watkins, play the music if you please.

And the photographs …
