I can laugh about it

I am originally from Malaysia and have been living in Germany since more than 5 years. I can tell you my worst experience here…. it all happened during my first year. I remember I was walking right in the center of Cologne, and suddenly I was surrounded by a group of young...

Apartment hunting: harder than finding a job

If you are an expat and want to feel in Germany like at home, then go outside and meet people. Try to meet local people – not only expats – and assimilate with them and their culture. This will help! However, something that I find really astounding here in Munich, is that finding an...

How integrated I am? In my opinion or others?

Everybody seems to be questioning others’ integration these days, while we all do it on a daily basis. It’s an ever-lasting process. And I believe it’s a natural instinct and a key factor to survive life joyfully. I am Muslim and Jordanian with a Syrian heritage, who studied and worked...

Passenger without handcuffs

Forrest Gump was right, life is like a box of chocolate and you never know what you are going to get. Last December I was travelling for work from Frankfurt to Ljubljana.

Who smuggled you to Germany?

My name is Mohammed Al-Sarray and I originally come from Iraq. The best experience here was to learn the German language and to know a new culture. In Iraq, we have different opinions about Germans and Germany in general. Most of these opinions stem from historical events, like the Second World War and...

Paese Multiculturale?

Il Paese multiculturale e multietnico in Europa è la Germania, seguito da Gran Bretagna e Olanda…. In Italia questo non accadrà presto… la mentalità é molto chiusa… e in Italia uno straniero non può esercitare un mestiere come politico, avvocato o bancario. Vi pare giusto? E comunque l’elenco delle cose...

Le reti alte e i militari tutto intorno: per essere libero di andare in Europa, devi entrare là dentro

Per arrivare dal Pakistan all’Italia, senza visto d’ingresso, devo giungere in Iran, attraversarlo senza farmi arrestare perché clandestino, e per farlo mi appoggio ai trafficanti; raggiungere la Turchia, attraversarla senza farmi arrestare perché clandestino, e per farlo mi appoggio ai trafficanti; raggiungere la Grecia, arrivare a Patrasso, infilarmi in un container e giungere a Bari...

Un paese veramente multiculturale

Perché l’Italia fa fatica a diventare un paese veramente multiculturale?
