8 Sentence Sunday Blog Hop
Missed you all last week and I’m glad to be back!
Continuing with my Swiss Boarding school memoir, “Internat Adventures”, chapter three talks about our regularly scheduled outings and Sunday field trips.
Read all about them HERE.
Preamble: Fall, 1968. Those damn bars on the ground floor windows (of our residence) still chafed! Angelika to the rescue. She was a beautiful but troubled girl, with long, curly blonde hair, who bore a striking resemblance to the actress, Dyan Cannon.
Her father, a German “Beer Baron” and socialite mother had shipped her off to school, rather than try and help her. Excessive drug use was the issue and she was often depressed and somewhat psychotic. She had a room all to herself on the ground floor and one day, led us to the door at the end of the hall. ”Do you know what’s in there? It’s off-limits”, she whispered. Naturally, we were curious and in the next minute, Angelika whipped out a small file and stuck it in the lock. After jiggling it a bit, we heard a click and the door swung open!
It was just an empty bedroom at first glance, but then we noticed the window. No bars!
You can imagine our delight at finding an escape route!
