Terror at our Doorstep
You will have heard the news. Terror, horror, complete bewilderment, compassion, grief. The city is very silent this early morning. I live seven minutes away from the Berliner Gedächtniskirche and the Breitscheidplatz, where the attack happened, and by shee...

A Fresh Start in 2017
Dear You,  I hope it's still time to send you my best wishes for                                             A HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!  It was almost a déjà vu: me dashing to Bavaria into the lovely Allgäu again! This time by train (which takes from Berl...

Thank you, Geo. and Tom!
