And there are people who have time,
but they don’t have money.”
For how long do you live in this area?
I lived in Amsterdam, France, Africa and Spain. In my birth certificate, Berlin is marked as place of birth but the certificate was lost.
Where are you from?
I have many roots from different places. I am very old and was born and reborn several times so I am connected to several cultures outside of Europe.
If you could choose freely – where would you live?
I would prefer to live in southern Scotland, India or St. Petersburg.
…your most important fellow(s)?
People I respect the most are artists. Politicians are simple people and people that haven’t character or people who are working the whole range of. I like people I can speak with and share interests.
Do you want to share some thoughts about living in a world of different backgrounds and cultures, i.e. anything you have learned about it?
At the end of the 70’s there was a development with more open impressions and cultures and the individual was respected much more. I was happy that people who haven’t got much money were able to travel around the world because there were hitchhikers, so I went to Morocco, I slept somewhere, and when it got cold at night, I got tea of mint and we smoked and cooked at the campfire. That was my life at that time today this doesn’t exist anymore.
