turkishIf you’re on a stroll through the Ziegelhausen forest, approaching a nice hut at a clearing called Geigersheid, this sign tells you that open fire is not allowed.

It does so in German and Turkish. That alone tells you a lot about the shortcomings of German integration politics. It also indicates who seems to make the most use of public barbecueing areas (or a popular rock water well nearby).

This ist not meant to be prejudiced against anyone. I think it’s a very interesting fact. Similarly, allotment societies report a lot of applications from families of Turkish origin. Could it be  that the migrants have kept a sense of feeding on soil and nature that most people in this fast, mobile, everything-to-go age have begun to abandon?
