We had to pass Helmstedt before reaching West Berlin.
We had to come in and show our passport. I had just lit a cigarette and did not want to throw it away so I just walked in with the fag burning.
I found that the officers looked strangely at me, but as far as I knew, nothing was wrong. I just looked at them with my big blue eyes and tried not too smile, I was told you d better not.
When I got out, my friend grabbed me at my arm, calling me stupid and sure was angry.
Then I understood, wow, did I feel blonde! This was east! So no burning cigarettes! Dumb me!
