After the conference, we came back to the hotel and discovered a huge rock concert happening under our windows.
“It’s an anti-fascist demonstration,” the receptionist explained cheerfully. “And around the corner, there is a fascist one. It’s very tiny, though. We don’t have that many fascists.”
I was eager to run around the corner to catch a glimpse of real German fascists but the hosts led us away from the crowd. Later it came out that the fascists meant AfD supporters so I didn’t miss anything really major.
