When I say police, it was one very friendly handsome young policeman in an unmarked car.
I was driving very slowly along the road next to the river doing about 40mph admiring the autumn, there was a car behind me not bothering to over take even though there were very few cars about, I kept driving at my own sweet pace and then he overtook just before we got to a village and the Police stop sign came up on the back of his car, so I did. This very handsome man came to the van and flashed his Police ID at me with a big smile on his face, I wound the window down and asked what was wrong, he was much more handsome than the one that stopped me last year, but the exact same reply "I wondered why a right hand drive vehicle had a German numberplate and GB sticker (he didnīt say lady driver, but I bet he thought it) He was really only curious I am sure because he didn't ask to see any ID to start with, he told me my name "You are Janet Köhne" I said "yes, how do you know that" well of course he knew and he already knew everything else because he had checked the number plate. If only I was 40 years younger, he was rather dishy. I showed him my ID and the vehicle registration document, he glanced at them, gave them back and we had a friendly chat, he confirmed there are very few cases of the virus in this area, he was in no hurry to go, perhaps I should have invited him in for a coffee, might have been fun
I had a few hours out, it was a really nice day, 21c° in Schwedt where I went.
