Why am I living in Germany?

I hate some days. I miss home. I feel tortured by another language. I miss home. I question why am I living in Germany. Then, on a thirty degree hot day, baking myself in the sun, underneath a blue sky, I discover: the smell of grass. And find out why. Upasna Kakroo

the stories behind fancy pictures

Sometimes I feel slightly uncomfortable sharing pictures with many people. They jump to these fancy conclusions that things are perfect, because the pictures are so (thanks to Tonk, of course).
