Prologue: How far would you go?

It is the night before everything will change. While I am waiting for my order in a Polish bar in my hometown of Offenbach, I think about the questions that I have been asking myself since January 2009: “How far would you go? How far would you go for love? How far would you go to live? Not just to live, but to really feel alive? And how far would you go to finally overcome this forever seeming, depressing chapter of your life?’.

 

On the surface, in early 2009 life seemed to be great. It finally looked like I could overcome my, at times, self-destructive lifestyle that had been developing since my adolescent years. I was getting closer and closer to the goal that I once thought was unachievable for me, to graduate from university. At the market research institute where I was working, apart from conducting interviews, I additionally received the authority to monitor and coach other interviewers. And my family seemed glad to see the progress in my life. It was, not just the pressure or the uncertainty in terms of my future perspectives, however, that were sources of tension. Deep inside I was dealing with a rollercoaster ride of emotions, and that rollercoaster was driving me insane, driving so uncontrollably that it was about to derail, the screws were getting loose, and the driving force of that rollercoaster was love.

Die Taschen waren voll mit Geldbündel. Jetzt musste ich schleunigst nach Merida gelangen, um all die Wertsachen zu sichern. Ankunft in Venezuela.


Ein Jahr ist es her, als die Krim auf eine kontroverse Art und Weise wieder ein Teil Russlands wurde: Eindrücke aus der Halbinsel sechs Monate später.


Was wäre, wenn man von einem Tag auf den anderen plötzlich das zehnfache oder zwanzigfache von seinem Geld besäße? In Venezuela kann sich diese Frage schnell beantworten lassen. Mehr dazu im Artikel Operation 'Lechuga Verde'
