A police car at Angela Merkel’s political rally

I wake up in the morning thinking whether it’s the right thing to go to a political rally in Bonn. There would be so many people- what if there is some terror attack? Since it’s Germany, the probability of attack is very low. So I convince myself that it’s completely okay and safe to attend a political rally here in Bonn.

A little help for our friends

I’ve been helping out at Deutsche Welle in the last few weeks and have become very interested in Womentalkonline, a blog and Facebook page that a small team of editors does for women across Asia. It inspired me to write a little about what my school is doing to help girls and women in Africa. Maybe something like this can be done in Asia. Perhaps it is already happening. It would be nice to find out more about this kind of thing.

It’s time to eat!

 

It’s Christmas time in Bonn and the first thing that strikes your nostrils is the lovely smell of Christmas goodies at the local market. From spiced wine served warm in special mugs to chocolate cake with cinnamon, from roasted almonds to cotton candy, from chinese noodles to traditional german dumplings with vanilla sauce, the Christmas market is a feast for the eyes, nose…and the palate! While we went out on our own very personal round of the Christmas market in Bonn,  we decided this might just be the perfect time to organize an online cooking competition, in which you send us your best recipe.

A page from my diary

There is always a first time for everything that happens to us. There is something special about the first experience. The case was not different with my first day in Germany. I had never travelled to a foreign country before. When I landed in Germany the feeling was mixed. I was missing home, I was worried, but at the same time the thought of meeting new people and learning new things brought some relief.

It was a cold morning on October 1, when I arrived at Frankfurt international airport. I felt dead tired. I completed the formalities at the airport, collected my luggage and started looking for the way to the train station. I had to catch a train to Cologne and then to Bonn. I was worried, but didn’t want to give this impression to the people around.
