When I came to Colombia I was an inconstant, melancholic, egoistic shadow of my former self. I was told that I had changed a lot (in parts positive / in parts negative) and I affirm that with no doubt.
…or a journey from a stressful city to peace and quiet.
Tuesday, the 16th of August 2016 – 8 o’clock in the morning – Arrival Bogota
After about 7-8 hours on the bus we arrive in Bogotá. The bus-terminal is small and crowded with people waiting for a taxi. We ask a police man if there is any other possibility to get into the city but there isn’t.
So we wait and try to figure out the wifi-passwords of the passing buses. At one time we are lucky and send a few messages home.
Germany, the 8th of October 2016
on the night before I flew a little group of people decided to have one last beer with me at my sisters place. We sat in the kitchen and I got a little book with photos of friends.
Silence. Open a beer. Lighten up the cigarette. Hide the emotion – thank you!
At the time I was writing “the hamster in its wheel” I was still fully into finding myself and finding my calmness again. I had no clue of what to do and where to go.
I was talking a lot to other people in the last couple of months and many agree with me that we live in some kind of modern slavery and so I decided to try and put my thoughts into words.
