It came to my mind that in Berlin they had and still have some threshold – thank god that the ones that separated the cities people and cost peoples lives is gone.
But there is a new “Check Point Charlie” – The British Embassy – to enter the Embassy area by car you need plenty patience and time. I was standing watching this diplomatic car enter the area and what a check up it went through.
On the other hand by the Russian Embassy there was only one guard – on the backside … quite up in age and very friendly.
The American Embassy two guards and a barrier – very friendly too.
Italians no guards, no fences – just beautiful flowers and a hedge – but as they said: with the mafia you don’t need any thresholds.
Berlin one of the best cities in Europe … if not the best!
“For many men that stumble at the threshold
are well foretold that danger lurks within.”
