Fork in the road

The border must be close.

The Stasi officers move to the front.

There is still an awkward silence in the bus.

Traffic gets thinner now.

In the distance rolling hills with the fortification installations.

Some of the comrades in this bus got close and got caught years ago.

 

There is a fork dividing traffic.

Taking the road to Western Germany.

Everything is really unnerving now, unbearable tension.
