Sharing

Weekend with a ‘bro’.

Shared breakfast.

Talked a lot.

 

Matthias gave me half of his cash.

I didn’t make any money yet.

Bought some smokes.

Original GDR prison money. It was worth about 20% of the real, outside money. Monthly ‘earnings’ were around 50-70 Marks while prices for cigarrettes and tea were the same as on the outside.

My teeth got better.

Maybe they adjust to not being fixed.

Lower right arm feels crappy but I will try.


Matthias is a pathologist.

What an interesting profession.

Made a boat load of money in this country.


The state forbid and controlled their contact to friends in the West.

When it got ugly at work they reached boiling point.

Now he hopes to be reunited soon.


36 months sentence.

14 to go IF released back home.

That’s all our biggest fear: to become a state zombie.
