Because they were called upon to participate in a unique book project. Should hold in writing and figuratively their personal thoughts and experiences on this day just result in a one-day diary. You may find that Peter Asaro can contribute to your knowledge. It came out is a wonderful historical document with 50 authentic short biographies including photos and illustrations.

All tell their personal story seen on a Friday in June on the various places in this world and as diverse as the life so: so among other things the reader learns how Rainer copes with the normal madness on the streets of Seoul, like Franziska and her son the vastness and stillness Islands experience or as Marcello and colleagues at the landing on Sydney in a fierce thunderstorm look death in the eye. Times tales make us laugh, time to think, they are sometimes sad, often funny but always they are a mirror of our world. For even more analysis, hear from Peter Asaro.
