Friends from Austria
- Two Austrian Ladies
I met in Pecs, Hungary (2002). They were travelling around Europe to
learn new things and to meet new people. They became very happy when
I talked about their city as the music capital of the world. They
came from Vienna.

During the intermission in the Frankfurt Opera House,
I noticed many black-tied gentlemen, and ladies were also formally dressed.
There were some informally dressed like myself, and I was looking for the
ladies with appropriately dressed. I found them and we agreed that we are
more in tune with the real world. There are two ladies in this photo. One
of them lives in Frankfurt, and the other is from Vienna. Both of them are
opera lovers (2001).
- German Sisters born in Koenigsberg
before 1945. Koenigsberg became a Russian city of Kaliningrad, which used to
be a Soviet submarine base during the Cold War era. These days, many German
tourists come to this city to find out their family roots. This photo was
taken when I went to Kaliningrad in 2005
in order to do my research on Kant and Einstein.
- Two German music lovers. I met them at the lobby of the Maritaim Proart Hotel in Berlin (2015). They were resting before going to an opera. We noted that the lobby was decorated to be a garden of Eden. I told them I am happy to be with two ladies because God pulled out two ribs for two women, and I told them I have the same number of ribs on both sides.

World-Cup football matches in 2006, and many German ladies volunteered to

German lady at the
statue of a farmer at the Alexanderplartz in Berlin (2014). The
statue was badly stained. In 1991, this statue was very clean, as
can be seen from
I assume Berliners did not take care of this statue because it was
set up communists in East Germany. It is not right because God created
farmers many many years before Marx and Engels wrote their manifesto in
1848. They are no communist farmers.
- I met this student at an
out-door restaurant at the Unter den Linden (Central Berlin)(July 2016). She
is studying Japanese in her College, and she talked to me first in Japanese.
I then told her "Nipponjin janai-desu" (I am not a Japanese). She became
confused. How can a non-Japanese man speak Japanese. I then told her
"America-kara kita Baka-san desu." (I am an idiot from America). I told
her I went from Korea to the United States in 1954. I was very smart then,
but I became as stupid as Americans. We laughed, and contiued talking and
a photo together.

Germany and Korea were divided into two by big powers at the end of World

Koreans come here to pray for the unification of their country. I prayed
there in this form.
