We finally have done it, my brother and me. We met each other in Santa Monica. Last year I was visiting LA together with my daughters and Lorenz. At the same time Ady, that’s my brother’s name, and his family were in Switzerland. He has three amazing kids, there’s always a big tohuwabohu when they are around, so much energy!
But there’s also Mario. I still couldn’t find out what the official name is for our relationship. Son of my ex-wife is too long, too much information. Stepson comes the closest I think, even when it’s not totally correct. I made the suggestion that I could call him friend but he didn’t really liked that. He has a postdoc at the Caltech in Pasadena and is living in a nice studio up in the Glendale hills with a great view over Los Angeles.
