I started doing some interviews with elderly people in the family because I knew they would pass away and we would lose the power of their story.

The moment the alarm goes off is the first test; it sets the tone for the rest of the day.

I have a large watch collection, and classic watches are especially important to me. I had a silver Rolex, and I actually gave it to my little brother. He wears it every day.

Whether or not all this came to pass in an East African ditch, I wouldn’t like to say. Perhaps it happened in North Africa or further west, but Africa was definitely the place.
