For the second year in a row, we’re ringing in the holiday season with a special treat. We’re bringing you stories from The Bear, Berlin’s one-of-a-kind storytelling event.
The fifth story in this series is called “Mele Kalikimaka” and come from Fabienne Lang, a journalist and writer based in Berlin. As a “third culture kid” harkening from Scotland and Mauritius via Hong Kong and Hawai’i, Fabienne loves sharing narratives and insights of her “homes” more than anything.
