Dear SIGgers,
I appreciate the friendly, clever, and helpful responses to my
question re. the expression, "Drei Stunden hinter Berlin." All of you
concurred that it means "out in the sticks/boondocks/boonies". And now
I recall it conveyed a feeling of superiority when uttered. Roger
Lustig added the Berlinerism (?) "janz weit draussen" (yott ve de),
having the same meaning.
Great to be in touch with this group!
