  1. Hallo Brian,
    schade, dass du vergessen hast, dass Peter dir 2007 bei unserer ersten Party im Haus sagte, dass man wohl in Hanoi alles nur ‘by the grapevine’ höre. Das war das zündende Stichwort, wie du selbst damals gesagt hast….

    Ich hoffe, ihr seid alle wohl unterwegs, war wirklich nett, dass wir euch in Berlin getroffen haben.

    Liebe Grüße
