1 month in Bonn

It's been over one month I left India and arrived in Bonn.
I miss India, I miss my eccentric cheap life
I miss my team-mates in TCS
I miss arguing with the Rickshaw wala and accusing him of trying to cheap me.
I miss the stares, the crazy life I had.
I miss my flatmates and all my friends.

But like they say, Life must go on.
I must say I find Bonn boring.
Yeah, the opportunity to get the passport stamped is tempting and consoling.
It lacks the warmth and life of India or, the madness of Nigeria.

I found an African shop which sells basically everything Nigerian and African.
All the food I missed in the last 17months, I have been consuming in the last one month.
My shoes finally arrived from India today, I am so happy.
So my camera charger is missing, I would have to buy a new camera if I cannot get charger here.
It actually has warranty, but unfortunately all the documents are in India.
I hate the fact that I have a camera and cannot use it or the idea that I might have to buy another one.
How I forgot it in India is the most annoying thing.

I wish summer would just come, I hate the rain and cold.
Ramadan starts next month, it sure is going to be very difficult and long.
It will no longer be fasting from 5am to 7pm, I shall fast for longer hours.
3am to 9.30 or 10pm.
God will see me through.

I hope to enter Nigeria in August, I hope things work out as planned.
I finally got my friend to take me to Koln (Cologne).
It is a bigger city, with more to see and shopping centres.
Rotterdam ( Netherlands) and Brussels (Belgium) are on the travel list for July.
I hope my travel partners do not mess up.
