About Hans Rippel
After having lived in six countries on four continents and traveled to over 40 countries on six continents, I now have come to see myself as a citizen of the world. In that spirit, I celebrate diversity and I am eager to continuously learn about myself and the world I live in. On my journey in life, I have obtained a B.A. in psychology with positive psychology as my main passion and interest as well as a minor in Religious Studies and a Buddhist Studies certificate. In addition, I am continuously exploring how to optimize mental and physical health to enhance the quality of life for both myself and the people around me. My interests include reading educational non-fiction books about psychology, physical health, sciences, philosophy, and religion. Among my hobbies, I enjoy playing squash, swimming, running, rock climbing, hiking, biking, and general physical exercise.

Thank you for posting photos of the tree. I am putting final edits on a memoir of a 97 year old Dutch-American friend who lived in Batavia-pre WWII. In Tjideng POW camp, there was a tree such as yours across from her housing. I needed to describe it. “A Sapphire Promise” should be published mid-May. I’ve had help from The Indo Project board members to ensure that I’ve told my friend’s story, while being sensitive to the colonial culture and how it is viewed today. Good luck in your life journeys. Sally
