Since 1862 the Erster Kieler Ruder Club exist. Die old gentlemen keep young with nearly daily exercise. For the AOK Nordwestmagazine bleibgesund I get into the morning routine with Uwe Johannsen and his team. By the way, he is the oldest active member. I've never seen such a youthful and fit 80+ years old man!

No Manhood Anymore
Steffy is one of the very few female chimney sweeper in germany. I can really understand her, that she like to be every day above, watching down on the "normal life" and to have the wideness across the roofs. That was fun, climbing on the roofs on a hot summer day.
Matías, 17, from Argentina, student at John Neumeier Ballettzentrum Hamburg was the protagonist of a story for the teen magazin on. For me, as a lindy hop dancer (a dance, which is filled with fun and improvisation), it was a bit difficult to understand what's so good at dancing ballet. This strict and serious dance class - I would never join. But for Matías it was heaven on earth. It makes him glad. And that's the point - equal which kind of dance - dancing makes glad.

Big names, best musicians, wonderful place. Being backstage and so close to these great musicians, was a nice experience. Nice to see, how these people work. How they work for themselves - work all together and create such touching sounds.

I grew up at a nice little town next to the baltic sea. The beach was just 5 minutes from home and I spent many days in the sand and in the water. One day when I was a child I realized that on the other side of my home country Schleswig-Holstein the seaside is totally different. Beach chairs on grass? No sand? The water (felt) always gone. - Since then, when I lay down in the warm sand and ask me if I go now in the water or maybe an hour later or both times I get a little smile on my face..

Miko can't wait to start with the game. Just a short snuffling and he goes. What he don't know - his funny game is a very serious and lifesaving work. He is a mantrailer. What an excelent work he and all these other dogs and people do. And all without pay.
Well, I think the dogs are well paid with tasty treats and cuddling. But the people, who invest so much time and energy, do this without any money, just voluntary. Thanks for your commitment!
