Martin Kettemann has a passion to travel to different countries. He not only wants to sightsee at places; he wants to immerse himself in people’s lives. He has a special longing for America, but also for Asian cultures. Though he can also enjoy face-to-face conversations, he often prefers emails, letters, chats and texts. Through private emails, he often finds access to the heart of other people and friends, helps them with different issues and get a stronger connection with them. These written conversations and personal experiences led him to write this story. The story is in a language that is not his native language. He chose English is because his memories and experiences have been for the mostly in English. It would have been easier in German, but it was important to try it.
