Natural surrounding


The summer of 2006 was the summer of Afghanistan – I traveled for the first time to Afghanistan, it was my first embed with an army as well.
The summer of 2007 was the summer of the chambermaid – I worked as a chambermaid in a hotel in Bavaria and I was happy.
The summer of 2008 was the summer of Swiss trains – I worked as a steward in the dining car of several Swiss trains. Ah, nothing better than Swiss trains.
The summer of 2009 was the summer of massage – I worked as a masseur in a Romanian resort and I discovered that a man is bigger than his disgust.
The summer of 2010 is the summer of hospitals. The hospital has become my natural surrounding. Soon I will become a nurse. If you want to celebrate life you should be able to celebrate other people’s excrements as well.
