Ich bin ein typewriter

I have been trying to buy a certain type of typewriter for some time now - it is one of the thinnest made and featured in the brilliant film, 'The Lives of Others'. This is about the East German secret police, the Stasi, and how it kept records on all East German citizens.

Anyway, I had a real result on German E-Bay and now own a very beautiful Groma Kolibri (Hummingbird in english).

I particularly like the three extra keys to enable the use of umlauts.

Thought I would try them out with a description of the end of our sunday morning run
Breakfast for Champions.
