I find it quite funny. Germany with it's history now has so many "foreigners" living here, you feel like in Turkey (well, minus the weather). The trend continues of course, since Germany has taken a lot of refugees.
I know, a lot of here are not happy with this. A lot is due to fear, and some of it is justified. It is not an easy situation which even led to many people voting for a far right winged party at the recent elections.
I understand the fear of "Islamisation" but a lot of the people are simply afraid of the unknown, different cultures etc. Germans are known to have quite a closed mind. BUT yes, islamisation is a thing, and I don't quite like that, either.
I wish this world had only earthlings, no separation between countries, religions etc.
I think it is wonderful to have so many different cultures at one place, and if it was done right, it could bring a lot of advantages and exchange and positivity.
I see people at the supermarket treating the black cashier girl with her head scarf very cold, not saying hello, thank you, and afterwards checking immediately their money.
Well, as long as our societies are build on money, separation and status, we won't find peace. It is hilarious because there doesn't have to be scarcity, with our technology (check out The Venus Project with some of it's great ideas!).
Anyway, this was one week Germany 2017. I don't see me ever moving back here. It's been almost 8 years now that I left and I didn't regret it one single second.
I visited family, my dad in Wilhelmshaven, where I went with my sister and her boyfriend, and my mother and grandparents (almost 90 years old!) in Geesthacht.
Now on to some sunshine!
