Jena is the best!

Hi, I am Şeyma Kadayıfçi, I’m 21 years old, originally from Turkey. I came to Germany for 3 months to participate in the Erasmus Mundus programme. What did you like the most about Germany? The nature, there is so much natural beauty in Germany compared to Turkey. It’s so green (laughing-ed)....

Tastes of Home: What food do I bring from Russia?!

I no longer believe in a multicultural society

I no longer believe in a peaceful, multicultural society in Germany … And I am not being racist or xenophobic.  I came to a conclusion that in some cases different cultures can’t live together…  It’s not only the fault of the people from different cultures, the fault is mainly of politicians and our governments…

If you speak the language, you never face problems

What is it like for an Indian woman to live in Germany? Good 😉 If you speak the language, you never face problems… The Indian diaspora and, important to me, Indian supermarkets and restaurants are almost everywhere.

I’m not turkish, but my husband is

In a capital city marked by transformation and transience, where people are perpetually coming and going, it can feel like a true rarity to meet someone actually from that city. “H” was my first Berlin friend from Berlin. We met through a language website, after she sent me a request to practice French in exchange...

For the past two years we have been interviewing multicoolties from all of the world that for one reason or another have chosen Germany. Our first questions during interviews are very similar, we must admit 😉 “Why Germany?” or “What brought you to Germany?” Here you go a list of...
