Life is easy in Eiderstedt, in the North of Germany, close to the Danish border. Music is loud, you can choose between Bratwurst or Currywurst, a beer and a short (‘Kurzer’), and only pedestrians are allowed passing through narrow spaces between houses.

This is Germany’s second smallest city, Garding, on a Tuesday evening, just a few hours before it gets really packed and mad. All in a straight and simple way. People don’t talk much here. They take life as it is. Wat mutt, dat mutt. Whatever will be will be.

And Pádraig was right bang in the middld ov g all!
