Back Home [en]

Back home in Switzerland. Got the cat back, but not the cellphone.

Switzerland is grey and dark and cold. No colours, no sun.

I’ve got my cat back (with a bit of extra weight, just like his mistress who now feels a little tight in her trousers), my brave little car started at the turn of the key, only one of my plants has died (it was already on the way down before I left), but my cellphone has been blocked.

I feel a bit dazed. The change has been brutal. I feel disconnected, as if my presence here wasn’t completely real — or worse, as if India was just some kind of weird dream, a sensation I sometimes have when I am over there. Something else I need to sort out at some point, I guess.

I’m not too sure what I’m going to do now. There are lot of things to unpack, an extra CD/DVD-rack to buy (!), a few things to type up, and lots of photos and videos to upload and organize. The flat still needs work, too.

I think I’ll take a Lush bath.

  1. There’s nothing like chores to get you connected to home again. Think of this: There still might be some great skiing before winter is over, right?What about that chocolate Switzerland is famous for? Time for Lindt truffles.

  2. That sounds dreary after all the sunshine! Btw, I finished watching most of the movies I picked up during a marathon viewing session the day after you left. And waiting impatiently to see the digital pictures 🙂

  3. When I came back from my first one-year-trip to India it took month until I felt comfortable again here in Europe. For me it was not easy to switch between these two cultures.
    Anyway, welcome back and enjoy life!

  4. Welcome back! I hope todays sunshine will do you a little good (well we have some here in Geneva anyway although it is very cold).

    I enjoyed reading your entries (as usual) I am curious and will read more.

    I would love to spend some time in India. Perhaps one day I will. Perhaps one day soon if I can manage it.
