In case you read German:

I think Bernd Ulrich made a interesting input in the, not very loud, German discussion Prostitution in the  magazine ZEIT the other day. I was lacking this angle in the Spiegel special this spring. In case you did not read it with your breakfast you have a second chance here.

This morning I was biking through the city. I left my apartment 7.55 am  and the weather was fine. I was wearing my running pants, a thick wool cardigan and my waxed male coat. When I left my morning meeting at 9am it was raining. Not pouring, but enough that my bike was soaked andI would be too since I … Read More

It is almost 2 month ago since I traded with Shantanu, who is running the trading project “Pixel Trade”. He has been living without money for 16 month now, trading his photography work against a bed, a plane ride or dinner on the table. He is back in Berlin this weekend, staying at my flat, and today he uploaded his … Read More


Aesop in Berlin

Last night the first German Aesop store opened in Berlin. I have been loving their products since I found the Ginger Flight Therapy (together with the B triple C gel a saver for overseas flights) at Liberties years ago.

Where I hide away

In the latest issue of the German Harper’s Bazaar they asked me for my favorite hide away. I answered Metohi Kindelis on Crete. Since the article is not really an article, rather a note, and on top of that it is in German, the upcoming days I thought I give you some pictures from this just stunning place. The House … Read More
