Across the Border

Hendrik Toompere

This story starts with how a circle of friends that includes writers, artists, businessmen and otherwise beautiful people plans an extraordinary trip to Nepal through India. Each one has his own interests, some want a pleasant trip, others want to study monastery culture, still others want to buy fabrics. Then, however, in their transfer at Frankfurt Airport when they are riding the elevator from one storey to another, there is an electric power outage. It lasts for a couple of seconds. Yet after that they are scattered across the globe: one to Sydney, another to New York, another to Stockholm, another to Kathmandu, another to St. Petersburg, another to Calcutta. Strange travelogues about how everything that was planned and nevertheless turned out differently are packed up into a very dense tourmaline suitcase containing nothing but cosmetics. This is a suitcase that constantly sings one question – where does this world fit in? Ultimately this question is also answered. These stories are all about life itself.
