Here's a view of what went on UNDERNEATH our jeans in the ex-commie countries.
During our tour through the once Communist-loving-Beatles-hating Berlin, we heard a lot about the hardships of life before the wall came down. Like people didn't have to work very much, education was really good, nobody was allowed to smile, and if I remember correctly, when games of Monopoly were played, all participants won. Talk about equality. And the whole time I was shaking my head in visible disapproval of government tyranny, I was thinking to myself, "Communism is my idea of what heaven is like."
