Friendly people

What can I say, Germans are friendly and kind people – especially during the Karneval time. Compared to Estonia… people are everywhere more cheerful than in Estonia. Can I quote you on that? If you want. It’s true.

Between two cultures

What does multiculturalism mean to you? It means to live your life abroad keeping your own culture and learning the cultures of others. I try to act similar to the German culture when I am at work or with my German friends, but when I am at a Bengali party,...

It’s your life that does not suit the place

I do not feel fully integrated, I still feel like a foreigner from Bangladesh, but I do not mind it. I just want to know that I am accepted here. Have you seen a movie with Russell Crowe “A good Year”? There is a nice dialogue between the main characters that...
