After passing successfully the control at the airport (with a tendency of some people to try to steal my luggage), we were brought to the flats we should live in. The whole city looks pretty poor, but our residence is really good, which keeps giving me an awkward feeling : it is indeed pretty shocking to see we have a big TV, “unlimited water” etc. while others kind of struggle to access a basic level of comfort. At least it’s my first impression.
Not much to tell about the first day. People seem to be often very nice, and prices seem expensive. I shall give more details about the life here in the following posts.
Alright. Today is D-Day. I’m taking off from Paris CDG at 11:30pm. I don’t exactly know when I’ll have the opportunity to access Internet over there so I will post this message right now and will update it from time to time.
Most of the stuffs I’m bringing with have been gathered, but nothing’s packed yet. Seems like I should pack pack everything and make sure there’s no weight problem. Do I have to mention I’m afraid of forgetting something ? At least I’m sure to take some pretty unusual stuffs, such as my Oxygen 25 MIDI keyboard (it’s a pretty small – best tool ever to keep making music while abroad). Gotta work on a split album with an artist named Parhelion… so here’s a small musical interlude with his sounds.
Still not packed, but it should happen just after lunch. Keep in touch.
Everything is now supposedly packed. Looking forward to leaving home in 3 hours about. Nothing much to worry about, I’ll double-check everything before leaving. Stay tuned.
