[Talking to Susanne Mallison upon being introduced to her, in Berlin's Soviet-controlled Eastern Sector, by her German sister-in-law, Bettina]
We, Bettina and I, do not see eye to eye about some things... this part of Berlin, for instance. But we are old friends, and it is our privilege to quarrel over little things, little things like war and peace, the division of our country, the fate of the world... trifles.

We still learn English in our schools...

What do you think?
- Is this your first visit to Berlin?
- You find it amusing?
- It's sad to see all this destruction.
There isn't much else.
The ruins are now
a familiar part of the city:
the Berliner no longer notices them,
doesn't even see them, isn't that right?
