“Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors.” ~African Proverb
They found my suitcase floating around in the Berlin post office, and I couldn’t be happier. I was imagining it floating around somewhere in Singapore or Timbuktu. I won’t say it was a good experience, perse, but it wasn’t really a bad one either. Afterall, it forced me to figure out what size German bra I wear, and to learn to rely on others once in a while (for instance, when I didn’t have any shoes suitable for walking twelve and a half miles in Berlin). Life isn’t supposed to be easy, what would be the fun in that, and in the end I’m alive and I have my pictures and diary, so es macht’s nicht!
