So, as promised on Instagram earlier, I went out for dinner last night with my father and sister. We went to a swiss restaurant nearby, which I really wanted to go to. It makes awesome Fondues! It's called "Schweizweit" and located in Hamburg, Germany. So if you ever go there, I highly recommend it! It's like a cute cubby hole and you have to go downstairs, actually, to go inside.
As promised in my last post "In Memoriam: Nelson Mandela", here's the list. I have had this list for a long time now of people I would love to meet one day. For various reasons. Possibly because they are motivational, inspirational, an idol, or just for the "fun-factor".
Here it is:
1. Nelson Mandela.
Actually, I wanted to meet him and collaborate with him through a meaningful, socially aware project in South Africa. And then - this is what I had imagined as a young girl - I'd be in contact with him and we'd understand each other so well that I could introduce him and my father to each other, just like my father has introduced me to him (as a person, not in person).
2. Warren Buffet.
Warren Buffet is one of the most wealthiest men alive at this time.
My interest in him, though, has evolved when my father gave me a newspaper article one day, about how this Warren Buffet, as a very young adolescent, did little and simple things to earn a little bit of money. I must have been about 12 or 13 years old at this time I received the article. His entrepreneurial engagement fascinated me as it is something we have in common.
I was shocked when I heard the news.
Only a few days ago was it that I wrote about one of my all-time favorite movies "Invictus". It is about how Nelson Mandela (played by Morgan Freeman!!) helps this white Rugby player (Matt Damon) to grow stronger as a person. He is motivated to be strong and support his team.
Actually, the movie's theme song and central image is based on the eponymous (same-named) poem by William Ernest Henley in 1875. This poem was one of Mandela's favorite ones, which he would regularly quote.
It is a great poem and especially a great, great movie!
Please, please do watch it - you will not be disappointed. I promise.

Now, guess who the very top person on that list was…
