BLURB

Well, there’s a couple. There is a couple that I can see here walking up and down, getting older day by day. I can recognize that. They can recognize me, but they have never looked me in the eye. I have only seen their faces looking at the dark sky, the stars, covering their head, running from the rain, sharing a shelter together with me. A hundred-year-old man who sits down in front of his house with a pile of newspapers and reads them all by the morning when the new ones arrive. The boy on the scooter that’s so fast I can only smell him for a split second. I can draw people by memory. I make up the details, but somehow it resembles the impressions they give me. They give me… cash… that I turn into memories, so I have them for life. In the evening there isn’t really much to do other than observing people. With an anthropology major that’s exactly what one’s professor expects, right? Doing field-work while hitchhiking all around the country. And all this because I don’t have a car.
