My birthday

July 3, 2013 - Mombasa, Kenya

My host mum didn’t allow me to invite my friends, so I told them to “surprise” me. I wanted to have some of “my” people over. I knew that there would only be kids and they are noisy. I counted 35 visitors. The food was sugary, the noise level high and many pictures had to be taken. It was overwhelming for me – not in a good way. I’m a person who prefers it calm and not jumpy. The next day, I invited only my friends to “Jahazi”, a good place to chill out and my Japanese volunteer-friend invited me for real Pizza on Tuesday. It feels like I had 4 days of celebration. And I was skyping to Germany, which gave me support and I could feel close to home.
