At first, however, there was nothing to indicate this. Perhaps because there was no lake to be seen, no body of water. And it wasn't sport that was the big thing in our family, but music. But when we moved to the Zurich Oberland, water became my element. For my brother Valentin and my sister Angelina, the Greifensee became our centre. No matter if it was summer or winter, sunshine or storm. Frolicking, fishing, walking, picnicking... whatever. The lake was our home. At the same time as I started school, my youngest brother Dimitri was born.
