Woke up very early this morning (4 a.m.) and I hated every second of it. I had to wash myself before checking out, off to Zurich international airport. Flight AirBerlin from Zurich to Nuremberg is the earliest from that international airport this morning at 6.20 a.m.. Landed in Nuremberg airport by 7.15 a.m. and met Hatimi (a friend from MRSM Taiping) at the bahnhof (train station) by 7.50. Wow the system here’s so fast!! Unlike that one place where I have to wait 2 hours from getting off the plane, immigration check, baggage claim, wait for the next transport…
And then go to Hatimi’s apartment, living with Baus who is also from MRSM Taiping. Wow the apartment’s so huge they live 6 people! I can build my own private clinic with a consultation room, nurse’s station, and a pharmacy! Hehe, when you earn 900 euros a month and get unlimited internet, kinda worth it to have something like this… unlike that government organization who are so unknowledgeable and/or stingy in sponsoring medical students in Russia (who happen to really want to go back and serve the country anyways) for just 500/700 USD a month when those in Bombay earn 800 USD!
Back to Hatimi’s apartment. It’s huge. That’s it. There’s also some kinda mini-gym in the room. rested till late noon. Then went out for a walk in the old town, climbed up the castle (Nuremberg Kaiserburg), and bought myself a sweater in New Yorker (it’s kinda much cheaper here in Germany because New Yorker originates from Germany, not New York). And also today (7th February) is Hatimi’s birthday.
Then back to the heavenly apartment to download with super fast speed with the super fast wireless connection shared amongst 6 people! I downloaded many stuffs including this Canadian Muslim sitcom Little Mosque On The Prairie (LMOTP). I watched the sitcom, it’s kinda funny and cool to watch it from a Western Muslim’s viewpoint.
Okay now going to bed already tomorrow heading to Munich. Only this time, Hatimi is the travel planner. And he speaks German so much better than me 😉
