There is so much happening every moment of every day since the last few days that this is the best I can get to capturing everything.
Emotions so far:
New nationalities I have interacted with:
First time at groceries:
• Cooking oil
• Salt and spices
Other new things:
• Figuring out a new currency and an entire system around it
• Search for a house
• Not having a clue which direction to look in before crossing a road
• Attempts at making every office day dressy
• Efforts at viewing Pakistanis without any bias
• Did I mention cooking?
The good thing is that 9 out of 10 people here have gone through the above experience. ‘New life’ is such a loosely used phrase that I will never be able to explain what I am going through. But these people are truly making every first step of the new life as comforting as possible.
And family, well, they are the pillars that keep me standing.
