For this visit, however the wrong strategy. In times of Corona (#fuckcorona) nothing is normal. And so I happened to […]

Corona crisis and no end in sight at all. Everyone has to deal with contact ban and how to protect those people, who are part of the groups at risk, the older ones and people with certain pre-existing conditions. Too much time to think about risks, illness – and death. That’s how I got the […]
