👀 Which of you has seen the film THE LIFE OF OTHERS? Definitely a masterpiece of German cinema, in which the situation of extreme espionage in which the citizens of the GDR (German Democratic Republic) were , is very well described. 👆 Some ways of doing things have remained in German everyday life, perhaps not in the whole of Germany, we live in Berlin and we can tell you about this reality. Here are two attitudes that surely you have also noticed on the street. 🚗 You are parking and slightly touching the car, in front or behind you. It is probable that someone is already observing you, and once you have left the car, ask yourself why you did not leave the leaflet with your telephone number to inform the owner of the machine of the "damage". Damage that generally does not exist. To say in their favor that most Germans are really very correct. If they do damage to a car while they leave a parking lot, they usually leave the slip with the phone number. The exceptions obviously confirm the rule! 👀There's another attitude of "control" that we really like. Does anyone throw something on the street? Someone will be ready to point this out to you, , remembering where it should be thrown away. The same applies if you do not sort the garbage. The spying neighbor will show you around in no time. But “ es ist gut so”, since we know that sorting the waste badly raises the costs of the condominium. 😅 In general, there is a Iive and let live in Berlin with regard to the way we dress and be, but there is also a control and respect for mutual actions regarding the common good. Here's a reason we love Berlin !
