    Was curious when I saw your name and wondered if your father Arne Kasten was the same person as my boss in the Briam Institute in Madrid in the late 1980s? I enjoyed many an interesting and thought provoking conversation with him during my time there. He was a fascinating gentleman. He was very kind and always gave freely of his time and advice. Just curious, I guess, as they were very happy times I have never forgotten.

    Yes, Arne Kasten is a great guy. I remember him from about 1971-72. Friendly, intelligent, helpful, well-considered by all. Ciao
