Home is where my heart is...

I think I am done travelling.
I am done living far away from home.
I am done living without my families and friends.

I returned to Germany on Wednesday, Turkish Airline decided to misplace my checked-in luggage. Everyone said I should not panic, my luggage came in today. I was in Lasgidi for 10days, I miss home. I am not sure Germany would ever grow on me, I think I left a part of me in India and the other part of  me longs for home.

I got to celebrate Eid with my family, I got to step into a mosque after so long and I was home for my mother's birthday. I went to mark attendance in the CIPM exam hall because I just was not prepared for that exam. I was able to see few friends, but I was so tied up that it was exhausting just been there. Lasgidi is still very much the same and just like home that it is, I felt at home. I did not even mind the power cut, my phone was practically dead most of the time and airtel had a field day chopping my credit anyhow.

My little sis, Zainab is all grown up, Aisha is now a graduate, too many stories floating around, everyone is so different and yet still the same...it felt good to be home. It actually felt right and, home is definitely where my heart is.
