#day243 – care package from home

My long-awaited little package from home arrived. Finally. There’re things, which are quite important in my everyday, but hard to get or way too expensive here in Bolivia. Products from the drugstore for example. Even if it hurts, I can buy a shower gel or a lip balm for three Euros, but sun cream for […]

#day131 – priceless art piece

Nothing describes our todays farewell Scene better than these painting of my niece. When little Resi strikes out to explore the world, the whole family comes to the train station to wave goodbye.

I prefer gifts to consume away, no items. […]

#day65 – faceswap with grandpa

The best thing to get a family party going is a little face-swap-action. That’s my learning of today. After my dad’s 57th birthday yesterday, we celebrated grandma’s 75th birthday today. It was one of these typical family parties. Many middle-aged till old people, most of them I only see for special celebrations and can’t remember […]

#day44 – my long-awaited little brother

Hard to believe what I figured out today. The little brother I wanted my whole live, is really existing. Even though my older sister was mostly nice, when we have been kids, I always wanted a younger sibling to bully about as well. A little person, which makes you feel stronger. The whole truth came […]
