Orangensaft statt Rotwein

Kann und will man neu geboren werden? Was geschieht, wenn die selbständig gewordene Hand zum Orangensaft anstelle des Rotweins greift? Wie soll man handeln, wenn die Schilder orientalisch verschnörkelt in alle Richtungen weisen und man nicht nach Maries Telefonaten zu tanzen gewillt ist? Man lässt den Dingen ihren Lauf, erhebt «in shallah» zur Mission, auf dass die Geschichte einen selbst findet.

Around the World in 20 Tubs

From Thailand to Patagonia in a single breath, from Tokyo to Paris in a sigh. Maille-Mobil makes it possible: the tub. And the travelers themselves even don't have to squeeze through drainage pipes – it is sufficient to close the eyes, to dive, and to determine the location, where one would like to reemerge. Still undecided? Then choose one of 20 destinations which are listed here. Because in every episode of «Mission Kaki» there is a landing station for Maille-Mobil – quite the fastest way through the story.
