I loved reading David's book. Casey is a very likable young busker and it was fun to "be with him" as he travelled and searched several beautiful
cities in Europe. I liked the way he "tuned in" to a new friend -with or

Damals trug es sich zu, dass der Frankfurter Flughafen mal wieder erweitert werden sollte. Dass vor Jahrzehnten versprochen worden war, er würde niemals außerhalb seiner bestehenden Grenzen wachsen, war so selbstverständlich vergessen worden, wie immer wieder vergessen wird, dass man Geld nicht essen kann. Natürlich formte sich ...more
