I spent a lovely evening in Münster yesterday as a guest of the Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft. They had kindly asked me to be their guest speaker for the evening and also do a reading from my book Planet Germany.
Beforehand I was treated to a tour of the fabulous city of Münster and a lovely meal.
Over dinner I asked who would actually be coming to the reading. My host said: “I circulated it round the Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft, and the University, and some of the local Grammar schools English departments.. and I called the British Army.”
Luckily when we got to the venue, it wasn’t actually being guarded by tanks and armed soldiers.
Afterwards I was also invited to join some of the attendees in a trip to a traditional local pub. A great end to a lovely day!
