Working with soldiers

originally written for gsnmunich.wordpress.com I let my eyes wander along the front gate. The entrance to the University campus is closed and guarded. A sign reads ‘Military Security Area – Attention firearms use’. The atmosphere is freezing and the place seems empty. A grim-looking soldier greets me briefly: ‘Ausweis, bitte.’ So much for first impressions, huh?
