My seventh entry to Norms Thursday Doors. Doors I have seen (to) often. A door of a bar. And to be more specific the door of the Wunderbar. When I was still in the Army, sometime ago I must admit, we visited the Wunderbar in Hamburg on Friday night. And again on Saturday night and … You get what I mean.
