On October 3rd in year 2000 I arrived with my 2 suitcases with the night train from Malmö to Lichtenberg.
Since then I have kept at least one of these 2 suitcases in a basement somewhere in the city.
I Never felt so at home anywhere else. I never lived so long at one place. Never been so true to anyone or anything else. Ever.
Hut ab, Berlin.
I wish I could celebrate this date in my home tonight. But, like every October 3rd the last 4 years, I will raise my Glas for my city from a bar in Marais.
And maybe think, for a second, on the fact that it is also 21 years ago since the of Unification of Germany. Just to put things in perspective.
