CHEESE STORIES. Back in the day, Americans were not used to the strong cheeses of Europe, so different from Valveeta and American cheese. A friend told me of being on a train passing through a checkpoint at the East German border when the Berlin Wall was new. A menacing East German soldier entered his compartment and ordered him to open his suitcase. His suitcase contained an extremely stinky cheese. The soldier caught a whiff and ended the inspection. Mary Jane and a girlfriend were on a train in Italy in the sixties when a group of soccer players entered their compartment and started flirting with them. One of them managed to convey the question: “Do you have any cheese?” The girls did have some strong cheese with them and offered it to the young men. The young men took the cheese, opened the window and threw the cheese out.
