SOMETHING IN ENGLISH


Layne Mosler in her Yellow Cab in New York

Berlin is full of english speaking people and even this blog has more and more visitors from the US. And I have time to write something in english because there are no clients in my taxi. Why there are no clients in my taxi? I can't say. May be it's because of the holiday in Berlin. I don't really know. Probably it's because I'm not on duty.

First of all I want and I have to thank my best friend Dietrich. For a pity he already passed away. At first I want to thank him for the title of my blog: AUTOFIKTION. It took him exactly five seconds to find the word, which perfectly fits with my writing. He gave it to me as a present. Thank you, my friend!

I have to thank my best friend Dietrich also because he supported me when I met Layne Mosler alias TaxiGourmet here in Berlin in summer 2010. Dietrich, you did a great job! You know, I was not in a good mood and you helped me "not to drive the thing against the three" - as we say in german.

Besides the great job of my best friend Dietrich I was a big fan of Layne Mosler's idea to ask taxi drivers where they like to eat from the first time I heard about. I introduced myself to her as a "little gourmet" and offered her a food tour through my Berlin.

We startet with "dead grandma" at Alexanderplatz, ended up with a wedding last year and I'm still a big fan of Layne's idea and of course of her too. By the way: Layne wrote a book about her adventures. Right now she is at the other end of the world for readings and interviews like this.

PS: Sorry for my bad english but my russian is even worse.
