From 2003 until 2004 I lived up in the north of Germany in a small town right on the Baltic Sea. I followed an exchange program at an art academy in Kiel. During the period of my stay I strolled along the beach almost every day. It was winter and really rough weather there. The only people I found regularly standing in the strong wind where the fishermen. Most of them where anchorites and not interested in talking to a stranger, but as they saw me passing by regularly I could obtain their confidence.
