Back to reality
Although this is my third longer stay in South Africa and I kinda (should) know what to expect down thereâ€¦
I got pushed back into reality straight away: dodgy neighbourhoods, walls & fences, alarm systems and an internet connection which took me almost an hour to simply look at two emails. Didnâ€™t expect the culture shock to hit me that hard again and realized that after years of livinâ€™ online 24/7 the next months will b different. Which doesnâ€™t necessarily mean 2 b negative thoughâ€¦ life will only be (a lot) slower and especially updating this homepage or fulfilling my primary goal of writing my thesis might become a bit more of a mission.
But anyway, made my way to the Cape safe and sound. Itâ€™s 17Â° C, windy as always but dry and people have told me that summer has left about two days ago. War ja klar!
The next weeks Iâ€™m gonna live together with Manou (ex-flatmate from my last ZA visit & Deutsch-kickt! team-mate), Righard (Africaans), Greg and Steve (both South African) in a nice little â€śprisonâ€ť about 15 to 20 car mins outside Cape Town city bowl. My room is a seriously f***** mattress on da floor, a few boxes and no furniture or desk. I love it!
Well then, I think thatâ€™s it for today since I have no idea how much effort itâ€™ll take to get those lines online. Zigeiner just wants to b home before it gets dark…
