The Iron Curtain 1983

I had just hitch-hiked from Vienna to the iron curtain which I then walked across. Nobody wanted to give me a ride across the really scary communist border so I walked. The next year I tried to do the same and they wouldn't let me, said it was forbidden. I showed them the visa from the previous year where they had written "walking" across the upper part of the Visa. The commie border official told me that if it was true then I was the first person to do so since 1968 and NOT GET SHOT. Jesus Jesus!!
Full story in the book. Coming soon
