*So, what have you done back in 1983 in Erfurt*
Was there and other towns in then East Germany for Luther's 500th anniversary with a tour.
Ohh, ok. I really wondered what an American has done in Erfurt - because if ever, visitors from the West were only allowed to visit East Berlin and/or Leipzig (because of the Leipzig fair). I have been to Erfurt and Thuringia right after reunification as a kid, and it was so ugly. Now that I recall it, the whole 80´s were pretty ugly - compared to these days, of course. ;-)
