What drives you mad these days?

Total zeit-not (need of time) – because I always want to do more than I can.

When was the last time you cried?

I wasn’t crying with tears, but I cried when I was watching The Old Man And The Sea movie.

Boating in parks, I think.

Hunter S. Thompson – the famous journalist – it will be a bottle of rum at one of the parks, which is insufficiently wild however.

If it’s been raining outside for days and you’re sick of staying in – where would you go?

I will take a walk in the rain.

What’s that place in Moscow you feel like only you know about?
