Dan Munteno (this is a pseudonym) was born in Romania, into a middle-class secular Jewish family. He lived through the unpleasantness of the communist regime until age 17 years, when the whole family emigrated to Israel in the 70's. After finishing high school, he went to the military, then left Israel for medical studies in Italy. He returned to Israel for specialist training and was later sent to Africa, on an internationally-supported Israeli medical mission. Since 1991 he lives and works in South Africa and was naturalized a South African citizen in 1994. His hobbies are long-distance trips to the surrounding countries of Swaziland and Mocambique, and collecting Southern African paintings. Dan Munteno is divorced, his 23-years old daughter is a student in Jerusalem and his 20-year old son is still in the military. " This is the power of memory combined with an expressive, almost journalistic style. Dan Munteno is able to convey his feelings of hope for a better, united world, and to share his joy of living even in times of sorrow. Very pleasant to read" Concetta De Vivo Dukes, lawyer, Johannesburg "This book comes from the heart. The stories, written in an unpretentious narrative, present ordinary people who behave unexpectedly in challenging moments of their lives. I have enjoyed them a lot. They brought tears to my eyes, as well as laughter. Because after all the differences between us are lifted, we connect with our souls and discover joy and peace." Mirjana Lovric, physician, Boksburg, South Africa " I have enjoyed reading this work. In each short story I felt like having a glimpse of people, events and countries, through a window that was opened only for a fraction of time. The personages were real in their life-time, and they are real in my mind ." Emmanuelle Kabamba, physician, preacher and writer, Boksburg, S Africa "Munteno's book is fun, witty and easy to read. I have "traveled" with it along the Mediterranean Sea toward South Africa, "met" different people, customs and faiths, and enjoyed most of them" Tracy Matthews, medical technologist, Boksburg, South Africa
