The old German Democratic Republic. As a young kid I was fascinated by their athletics team and would watch any documentary about the country I could find.
Is any of it remotely relatable?
It's amazing how German Christmas markets and Oktoberfest have infiltrated UK culture.Super mixed bag - some very much so (Neuschwanstein Castle, Umlauts, Steffi Graf) and others are very much cringed upon clichés (Hasselhoff, Kraut and Wurst).
But some of the clichés are true though.
I would also put Christmas Markets, Carnival, Oktoberfest and co. on the list. We do big gatherings feat. booze quite successfully.
Does everyone like her?
