Manila fancies Hamburg‘s experts

Elmar Lutter works for Lufthansa Technik at the Ninoy Aquino airport. German engineers are on demand in the Philippines. The government wants to lead the country out of agony to something approaching western standards. Tin shacks and children searching through piles of garbage for recyclables are evidence of poverty. Lufthansa Technik, a global contractor for maintenance, repair and overhaul of passenger jets, is also engaged socially in Manila. The company trains local youths.

The tea man

In Moscow the other day they ordered 20 tons of the finest tea. Ralf Janecki’s company is progressing. The office of the Hanseatic Tea Export breathes the air of the big, wide world in the industrial harbor of Bremen. “We get up to 300 samples per day,” says Janecki. At the end of the day they are called “Althaus” tea or “Pure Tea”. These top varieties from the auctions in Mombasa, Calcutta and Colombo are not available in the supermarket. They are ordered by first rate hotels, or online. The customers rely on Janeckis nose. “90 percent of it is smelling, the rest is sipping.” The table with samples for tea tasting is eight meters long.

He who knows what women want

Dirk Bauer drives a Porsche. This car is the one fun factor in the life of the man from Bremen.

Bauer is the head of a factory, which joined the global leaders in the industry in only a decade. “Fun Factory” produces sex toys: dildos, vibrators. Love balls.
