What would your answer be when asked who you are? Your name? Your job? Where you are from? There was a time when Mihai Tufă, a 26 years old Romanian, would have done the same. Was. “I cannot do that anymore as I don’t know exactly”, he writes in his email to me while watching the sunset over Zierker See on his way to Berlin, “instead of who I think of what and that is tricky. At the point, some take me as this fellow traveler who is walking around the world while taking loads of photos…Continue
