East Germany Lives On

Catholicgauze just got back from DC late so today's blog post will be short.

East Germany lives, kind of, sort of according to this post from Strange Maps. Apparently Castro gifted a small island to East Germany in the 1970s. However, when East Germany and West Germany merged the island was left out of the treaty in a loophole. Years later, when brought to his attention Castro said it was only a symbolic transfer of the island. However, Sealand fans will forever recognize East Germany's continued existence on Cayo Ernesto Thaelmann.
