Rad Geek has it right on immigration|

I had to walk around in Palma de Mallorca for a day holding my passport in front of me to prove i was a foreigner in order to pass freely through one part of town, as martial law was in force there due to student unrest, but only for Spanish citizens. It was odd and unnerving to say the least. That was in the Summer of 1984.
I have an aunt from East Berlin, who went shopping in West Berlin the day the wall went up, taking some money but no ID. The Eastern gov't wouldn't let her go home, even after her parents brought her her passport, license, and money. So, she got on a plane that took her to Columbus, OH, and she became my aunt Helga.
Having read the full article, i agree with it.
