It was only the first time that I have booked an accomodation in advance. Better so, as this place is known to be very expensive, all the more around new year. Even though this country is so easily reachable from Germany, I have never visited it before. Despite having met so many of its people abroad, I never got to see their home.
So now it is time. Here I sit, only 500 meters away from the hostel where my friends are staying. We haven't travelled togeher for over five years. They have no idea that I am about to join them to celebrate new year.
It's 'tea time'!
