rich man meets refugee

when in bad reichenhall, do not forget to visit the beuatiful lake königssee (close to berchtesgaden, southeast bavaria). for me it was a very special reencounter after 26 years :-)

then: poor refugee with no money, no legal status to stay in the country, no clue what the future brings especially if the german authorities will send me back into socialistic czechoslovakia (that would mean jail or worse back in 1988)
today: quite well situated man with the best of all wives, two nice almost self-reliant daughters and most of the stuff people usually dream about ...

a crazy refugee ~ going to swim in a 14.2 degrees celsius cold alp lake in the middle of october ... and it was not the end of my crazyness. just two years later i swum in lake königssee in early december by otside temperature of minus 1 degree celsius and water temperature of 3 degrees celsius  :-)
