Arrival in Frankfurt

2 Nov

After 4 nights without much sleep I simply slept during both flights. The changing in Kairo was as annoying as last time… queueing a lot, being pushed back and forth by funny tourists. I missed Kenya already, the politeness, the smiling people, the pole-pole-ness.

In Frankfurt then: A lot of unpacking, washing clothes, sorting presents, listening to Kiswahili music. Going to bed early. A golden autumn was waiting for me in Frankfurt, breathing the fresh german air.

Home feels good. First Cheese-Bread (with real chesse and proper bread) in nearly 4 months.

Home feels cold. Fortunately Benja had switched the heating on already.

Home feels clean. No dust on the roads, no mud, no iron sheets.

More later… I need to think a lot before I can really write how I feel.

    Hey Manuela! Welcome back to Germany! But your Stay in Nairobi doesn’t end at least. Today I had a call from the headmaster from one of my schools: the parents of his children have voted, that the income of the christmas-bazar goes to the Upendo Center. I think, that is a welcome small candle for peace in the world and help for the children, you worked with in the last the 4 months. I am proud on you. Thomas
